Limited edition, number 82 of 250 copies signed by the artist, from a total edition of 280. 20 photographs taken during the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, supposed to answer the question posed by Calle to the personalities she met: "Since Los Angeles is literally the city of angels, where are the angels?"
