“Whatever one might think of L.A., it is actually something else,” says Michael Light in The Believer. “It shifts constantly. Color work on an overcast day, the difference in seasons, puffy Hudson River School clouds in between spring rainstorms versus late-fall harshness—it’s startling.”
In conjunction with the release of Both Sides of Sunset: Photographing Los Angeles, a sequel to the acclaimed collection Looking at Los Angeles, the Los Angeles-based photographer and artists Zoe Crosher, Bettina Hubby, Michael Shields, and Ed Templeton share their distinct visions of the city’s visual landscape in a panel discussion moderated by David L. Ulin of the Los Angeles Times.
