Two weeks ago I received a call from a Vice President at CalArts asking me to photograph the condominium she and her husband are selling. Coming from the highest echelon of a nationally recognized art school her inquiry got my blood pumping!
I went down to her condo, nested in the hills of Los Angeles, and it was beautiful. Polished cement floors mixed with the bright texture of an otherwise bamboo wood floor opened the main room up to the vista over Echo Park. The hills of Los Angeles transport you out of the hurried lifestyle of the deep city and into a more intimate community that, if even just a mirage, contradicts the storied indifference of Angelinos.
Over the past few years I’ve only had a handful of opportunities to photograph interiors but each one presents its own unique challenges and opportunities and I’m very much looking forward to the next one!
