Photographer's Note

It may be a bit confusing for people who didn’t visit Los Angeles yet: some areas are administratively part of Los Angeles like Hollywood, but other are separate towns like Beverly Hills. Even though both are physically surrounded by Los Angeles. One of the towns, which you can find inside Los Angeles is Culver City.

In this photo you can see a minaret of the King Fahad Mosque. The mosque was financed by Saudi Arabia. Ironically, as it is stated in an article in the Guardian Christian churches are in Saudi Arabia forbidden, the article says: Conversion from Islam is punishable by death. Church buildings are forbidden and so Christians meet in house churches, which are frequently raided. Christians may be arrested, imprisoned, tortured and deported for their faith.

Los Angeles is certainly one of the most multicultural cities in the world. I remember some statistics from the past: Los Angeles had 50% Hispanic, 20% White, 20% Black and 10% Asian population. Certainly, a very interesting place to live.
