Olivier Dalle and Paul Burlingame have a passion for art and a passion for neighborhoods. These two interests have came together in their latest endeavor, a book of photography focused on La Jolla appropriately called "La Jolla / 92037." They showcase everything local - local artists, local culture, local characters. On what defines La Jolla. This definition included profiles on many of La Jolla's most fascinating, and sometimes most eccentric, residents. Raymond Chandler (creator of the genre of pulp fiction), Niki de Saint-Phalle (local artist), and Dr. Seuss are all mentioned. They talked to many residents and followed whatever leads they provided and spent 3 1/2 years preparing this book.Dalle and Burlingame plan to create more collections on neighborhoods, including Little Italy, Hillcrest, Coronado, Encinitas, and some neighborhoods in Tijuana. "La Jolla / 92037" will be released to area bookstores in October.
