This week’s featured syllabus is How to Love Los Angeles by Diana Ruzova.

For all the mythology, projections, and vitriol that are regularly lobbed at Los Angeles, to Diana, the city is simply home. Her syllabus surfaces the everyday reality of a place too iconic for its own good. Where misconceptions flatten the topography of a location’s character, Diana embraces L.A.’s varied ups and downs. She captures the city as only a local can — not only through hot public transit takes and greasy spoon recommendations, but also in her photography, which aptly renders L.A.’s beauty and oddness.
