I shot this in Venice, California in the late spring of 2019. The Rock Purslane was in full bloom and seemed to have sprouted, from its center, a giant telephone pole that carried the pink even further into the sky. From there it burst into this kaleidoscopic image in my mind’s eye.
“I don’t know what it is exactly that I find so, romantic, amusing, nostalgic, and electrifying about the countless variations of intersection between the western sky and the miles and miles of utility lines that cross our view. I do know that it is something about the towering palms and the raw hewn poles standing as kin, the knotted junctions of wire and hardware impossibly entwined, and moments of meeting- buildings, branch and frond, that delights and ignites me. This interconnected airborne architecture of Los Angeles is impossible to escape and I find it endlessly inspiring.”BACK TO PHOTO
