Mannequins On Broadway

A not-so-modest recap of "East of West LA" (the book): "...an earthy, pithy, gritty look at present LA done with the eye of an artist." Phil Jackson, LA Lakers

"His photos are counterintuitive as to what many people think of when they think of Los Angeles." Los Angeles Times

"Stunning and insightful" - Photographers Forum.

Photos also now on display at Ed's Coffee Shop, 460 N Robertson Blvd West Hollywood

They absolutely are. Makes a great gift, too.

K, I love love love this picture. Can't quite say why. It's a little different from your other stuff--a different kind of weird.

hey neat about your book! Not sure which is creepier - the mannequins with heads or the one that's missing.

Thanks for your comment back at my place. I got this new lens, a Canon 70.200 F4 L, and it is incredible! I don't have to adjust color or anything. And I finally fiqured out how to shoot in shutter priority. duh. But the lens is amazing for action, which I never much shoot. Or people. Just running out of interesting buildings.... gotta go to Pittsburgh and shoot some dead tech...

Love the photograph. I don't think the mannequins are scary, despite the Twilight Zone associaitions.

These mannequins are so creepy.

I second Los Angeles Times. However, I must admit that LA's always had two sides, at least, as far as I'm concerned. Literature has described it, but we've rarely seen the photographs.

Congratulations on the good publicity. Moreover, they sound as if they know what they're talking about.

As for the mannequins, I'm in the camp that finds them creepy, but effectively so. An interesting, disturbing shot.
