I recently revisited Rachel Carson’s “The Sense of Wonder,” a simple book which celebrates nature for parents and children. She writes about the beauty of the natural world with the hope that its message will be passed from generation to generation. One of my favorite quotes from Carson includes the following passage: “In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand is the story of the earth.”

In this photo essay, "A Possible River," Bear Guerra documents the Los Angeles River. Before the city's rapid development, the river supported a large population of migratory species. This photo essay highlights the state of the river today, indicating signs of resiliency amidst a city of growth.
