L.A. So Far was conceived of as a book that comprised photos made using black and white film, most of which I had processed, during my time living in Los Angeles. The photos are presented as a concise narrative that roughly corresponds to the biographical and aesthetic phases I experienced there.
The layout of the photos in the book is an homage to Robert Frank’s seminal photo-book, The Americans (1958), as well as a statement of my feelings regarding how photos should be presented in a book. Each photo is presented in isolation from the others on a page of its own, not obstructed by being printed in the “gutter” of the book binding, yet forms a dialogue with the photos preceding and following it.
The following photos comprise the full set that are found in the book, which can be purchased here.
