This series explores the aesthetic and utilitarian effect of architecture in and around parts of Los Angeles that are less visited by the general public. Minimalistic in nature and inspired by abstract expressionism and graphic design, it represents a coming to terms with my hometown by shooting subjects that I find beautiful for their vibrant colors and clean lines but are simultaneously devoid of obvious signs of life and exude a feeling of emptiness. The result is a homage to ‘The City,’ combined with a hidden desire to escape to another place or perhaps another time.
