Long-blog-post warning: all gallery images

If you can’t make it to the gallery show by March 16, here’s a complete overview of the images — all an exploration of Los Angeles. Feel free to email me for a catalog with prices.

Night Trees

Giant prints, around 32″ x 40″. Photographed entirely at night (not dusk, not the magic hour, but night), by streetlight, on 4″ x 5″ film. Exposures range from 4 minutes to an hour. An ongoing series.

Night Cars

Prints are 20″ x 20″. Like the trees, photographed entirely by streetlight at night (not sunset or twilight, but night). Exposures range from two to 40 minutes, all on medium-format film. An ongoing series.

Night Polaroid

Big 40″ x 32″ print. A Metro-rail overpass, photographed on expired Polaroid film with an ancient Polaroid 110A Land Camera. Part of my Night Polaroids series.

Aerials

Prints are 16″ x 16″ (with a panoramic at 32″ x 16″). Photographed by helicopter on September 29, 2012, during the 405-freeway closure of Carmageddon II.  All on medium-format and panoramic film.

Green home

Prints are 17″ x 22″. An extremely eco-friendly home in the Hollywood hills, designed by architect Beth Holden and photographed originally for Angeleno Interiors magazine.

Digging the Urban Archaeology

About 150 people turned out to see my Urban Archaeology exhibition last Saturday. It was a crazy evening topping off a crazy week, and I didn’t shoot a single photo of the opening. Got some crappy iPhone photos from my awesome brother, who had the presence of mind to think that someone should document this. That’s me, in the grey shirt in the middle, probably talking about the perils of shooting long exposures in residential neighborhoods at night (security guards, police, dog poo, rain).

Get out those credit cards, people.

Note for future shows: Place the cocktail bar inside the gallery rather than out back; it’s where everyone hangs out.

Thanks to the brilliant people at  New Theme gallery for making it a success. Complete image catalog in the next blog post.

The big show: February 2

It ain’t baseball, but it is the major leagues. Like probably every photographer out there, I shoot personal work and figure that, someday, when art historians are poring over my images and deciphering their meanings, there will be some kind of gallery retrospective showing a career’s worth of brilliant art produced silently and invisibly for years.

Well, brilliant or not, it’s time to stop being invisible. I’m having a major solo show, Urban Archaeology, at the New Theme gallery next Saturday, February 2.

 

The show is indeed a compilation of several years of work, all documenting various facets of Los Angeles, including Night Trees (all on 4×5 film) …

Night Cars (all on medium-format film) …

Night City (all on Polaroid) …

And my imagery of the work of New Theme Architecture, which is bringing new forms to Los Angeles architecture:

OK — time to get back to scanning and dust-spotting. It’s glamorous, the life of a photographer.
