This weeks set of images come from one of my favorite parts of the city near the intersection of Western and Sunset. For those who are unfamiliar this is in the heart of Hollywood, far from any tours or glamour. It’s one of the most vibrant parts of Los Angeles and I always enjoy documenting […]
Corner of Grand and Pico, Downtown Los Angeles 2007. This is one of my favorite photographs from my archive. It perfectly illustrates just how much this part of Los Angeles has changed in the past decade or so. This store is still there but it’s the only part of this picture that remains in place.
Liquor stores and corner markets are a fixture in most Los Angeles neighborhoods. I just added a set of photographs to my True Topographics project that documents these local establishments. You can find the complete essay at the link: Markets & Liquor Stores.
I’ve been going deep into my archives for a presentation at this year’s Photo L.A. fair and thought that I’d share a few of my favorite images from a while back. All the photographs in this post are from 2006/2007. Los Angeles has changed a great deal since then, the contrast between what some of […]
The sunshine returned last Friday so I was able to get back to work out in the street. I mostly photographed Van Nuys and Pasadena this past week. Enjoy!
I just added a new photo essay to my portfolio titled “Getting There”. It’s based on a few thoughts I have about the importance of public transportation in a major city and how using it keeps us connected as human beings. You can find the complete set at: Getting There.
Van Nuys, 2019. You wouldn’t know it looking at Instagram, but there’s more to Street photography in Los Angeles than Downtown.

With my own photography in particular, I’ve always considered it one never ending story, a visual representation of life in Los Angeles from my perspective. One aspect of this approach (and a byproduct of growing up here) is connection to […]
Last week I had a really good day. After a work sponsored holiday breakfast and a trip to the Broad museum I found myself with an afternoon to kill in Downtown Los Angeles, complete with camera in hand. The weather was breathtaking as usual (a Californian perk) so I went to work photographing the streets […]
Every time I go to the zoo with my family this guy in a suit is outside for pictures. He doesn’t work at the zoo and it could literally be anyone in that costume. It’s strange. There is no way in hell I’m paying him for a pic with my kids. My daughter asked me […]
