In the late 1970s, Tim Bradley was a photography student living above a grocery store in Glendale. Inspired by the lush color photography of that period, he began a four-year project exploring the singular qualities of California light and space using his aging neighborhood as a backdrop. The resulting body of work, entitled California Dwelling, was shown only once and then put away for thirty years. In 2010, he started the slow process of having the original negatives restored and printed to recapture the soft palette that defines our regional light. He observed that "the layering of old bungalows, postwar apartments, vintage cars and traces of contemporary suburban life made the places look like no one knew what decade it was. Sunlit pastel surfaces and night views with illuminated facades and impossible shadows projected a feeling of theatricality."  California Dwellingis Tim Bradley's first exhibition with Craig Krull Gallery, and will consist of a selection of 32 x 38" archival pigment prints.
