Welcome to Los Angeles in the last few days of April 1992.

"David Butow witnessed many historical events through the lens of his camera as a freelance photojournalist, including the 1992 uprisings in L.A., the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and the 2019 protests in Hong Kong. Most recently, he was in Ukraine shooting photographs of the war."

David Butow recalls taking photos of burning rubble just a couple blocks from his L.A. apartment in 1992.  (View these historical images overlaid on present-day 360º video in this immersive piece, and hear from the photographers themselves.
