Biographical Information

Anton Wagner (also known as G. A. Wagner) was a PhD candidate at the University of Kiel when he made these photographs to document his dissertation, Los Angeles: Werden, Leben und Gestalt der Zweimillionstadt in Südkalifornien..., published in 1935. His thesis suggests that the topography of Los Angeles produces the character of the city's inhabitants. After World War II, Wagner settled in Montreal and worked as a commercial journalist and trade marketing consultant.
