As a landscape photographer since my student days, I’ve long been drawn to photographing both rural and urban settings. Here in Los Angeles the urban often has a rustic quality – inclusive of all the types of residential dwellings spread across this big city. Whether it’s the entrance to a drab dingbat, a 1920’s bungalow court, or the finely manicured hedges of a gateway to a mansion, there is an abundance of greenery and flowers.
For me, this series of photographs are what you see when you pause for a moment to wonder what’s behind the windows, up the stairs, or at the other end of the alley. I am curious about what is not seen. What can be imagined.
