Slab Dwellers, a documentary on the denizens of an alternative community known as Slab City, the last free place in America, a squatter’s paradise. It provides the foundation for this unlikely, eccentric community of various outsiders – drifters, “snowbirds”, artists, addicts, homeless and others – a community of independent, authentic individuals seeking freedom from a broad spectrum of perceived restraints from high rents and taxes to tyrannical rules and regulations, to the pressures and harassment felt by the underclasses. Welcome to “Hellhole” and my current photo essay, Slab Dwellers.
