An American Lowlife

Originally published as a limited edition tome in 2011, Scot Sothern’s An American Lowlife has now been resurrected in digital form.

The photographer spent five years documenting the lives of street prostitutes in southern California between 1986 and 1990.

Accompanied by Sothern’s confessional texts, the result is a gritty and bleak but at the same time artistic portrait of society’s underbelly.
