Hillcrest captured on a coffee table
30 May 2012
Shortly after moving from the Midwest to Hillcrest in 2010, multimedia artist Thomas Graff responded to an ad on craigslist posted by Olivier Dalle. At the time, Dalle was searching for a photographer to shoot scenes for his second self-published coffee-table book in a series profiling San Diego’s neighborhoods.
