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 S├╝dkalifornien..., 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.
