When Gregory Jones shared his new project, Los Angeles, I experienced a bit of deja vu. His photographs were transversing many of the same streets I travel on a daily basis and what may be a road trip for him, was unfortunately a reality for me. These are images created with a disposable camera in preparation for a long term project.
After graduating from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a BFA in Fine Art Photography, Gregory received an artist residency in Bejing, China, currently he is working as the co-editor of the terrific Urbanautica Magazine
and working on his fine art photography.
Images from Los Angeles
Los Angeles, 2011: In the Fall of 2011 I drove from Rochester, NY to Los Angeles. where I spent three weeks working on the first part of a long-term project. This isn’t the project.
When I left for my trip, I brought along about two dozen cheap disposable cameras. My intent with these was to make pictures that went against my normal formal style, and to make pictures that could most resemble pure documentation.
These pictures were made on the streets and highways of Los Angeles, as I drove around looking for places to make pictures.
