Dawn on Sunset

Archival pigment prints from a series about a brief moment when the first hit of day heralds dawn over Sunset Blvd.

Archival pigment prints from a series about a brief moment when the first hit of day heralds dawn over Sunset Blvd.

When I arrived in Los Angeles from the UK, Sunset Blvd had an allure from the 1950 eponymous noir movie by Billy Wilder. Moving to Echo Park was a contrast to the film version of the Boulevard but nonetheless dramatic, a street filled with possibilities and contrasts. My series Dawn on Sunset looks at Sunset Blvd during an unfamiliar time, at first light. With few people, little traffic, something slightly unfamiliar happening on the boulevard. In Los Angeles, due to its latitude, the twilight is short lived, fleeting, short too are the moments when the city changes gear from night to day. It these brief instants I am inspired to investigate the transitory reveal of a familiar place in an unfamiliar light.
