Expired LA.

  • Expired L.A. is an on going series of my exploration of Los Angeles at night.

    I look for run down buildings that hold a forgotten beauty and photograph them with expired 4x5 duplicating film. 

    Every building is unique and captivating, as well as the individual color shifts each building creates with every exposure. 

    I am fascinated by the drama that is created by the night sky and seek the beautiful in the over looked; I find the mundane to be extravagant and I find the beauty in the expired; This is my Los Angeles.
    Note: There is no banding on the original film. All images are scans and uploaded.
    The only retouching that has been done is dust removal.
