Sentimental is the first monograph by Michelle Groskopf. The work is from her life and the streets of Los Angeles. It’s her love letter to the city and its people. In her own words, “It’s ok to STARE” sums up what makes Sentimental special.
"We tend to forget that most of life takes place up close, where we cross each other’s paths. When we frame that energy, we can marvel at its beauty.This is Los Angeles. This book is a map of my whims. It’s a diary, in memory of all the days I trotted half in love down the street. It’s how I see colors and how I hold faces up to be worshipped. It’s my love letter to this grand city and it’s people. It’s also a love letter to my childhood and all the ways it shaped my aesthetic. This is how I formulate my daily geography, the very things that prop me up and keep me afloat.This book is for you. I want you to have it. I want you to know that it’s ok to stare”.—Michelle Groskopf
