Quick Facts
Statement
These recent photographs were shot in Los Angeles and the surrounding suburban cities of Southern California. Most of these spaces and objects are the mundane of the everyday urban environment. The work captures the spirit of “New Topographics” photographers of the 1970’s, who’s themes explored the beautiful in the banal of newly formed communities in the western US, while railing against norms of traditional landscape photography. Seemingly around every corner there is often a collision of aesthetic choices that were never “collaborative” in that time usually separated the development. This usually creates the very unplanned feel of the LA area where an organic dance of growth and decay are accepted. If we slow down and look deeper there is unique evidence of “the story” in each place. We have been there and left our mark.
