The Los Angeles Recordings

A photographic portrait of Los Angeles & the people who live here.

True Topographics: Apartments

The latest addition to my True Topographics project (located on my portfolio website) is called Apartments.

Housing and affordability are being discussed with an ever increasing sense of urgency throughout California. I decided to put together a collection of photographs documenting the types of buildings that are being replaced by luxury units all over Los Angeles. Many of them are older and fall under rent control laws, making them the last place many L.A. residents have any chance of living in. They also give the L.A. landscape much of it’s character and atmosphere, without them the city will be a very different place to live.
