"LA1980" is a look at a now-vanished Los Angeles; skaters, punks, rock-climbers, drummers, gay-pride, Hare Krishnas, muscle-cars, and Moderne landmarks.

In 1979 there were still vacant lots on Wilshire Blvd in the Miracle Mile, Beverly Hills had the Wonder-Bread Bakery on Little Santa Monica Blvd, and a noticeable number of buildings still had 1920’s signage intact.

If Melrose Ave was coming into a hip incarnation, Beverly Blvd was still where upholsterers worked in blank-front buildings. The Farmer’s Market on 3rd St. was somnolent, and the dinosaurs at the George Page Museum were surrounded only by seeping tar.

The original color negatives were shot between 1979 and 1982. They haven't seen daylight since their creation.

I keep a stable of vintage film cameras in steady rotation with various projects. • I'm interested in everything except television and professional sports. My day jobs involve print production, digital retouching, image editing and keeping an eye on things that boil over. •  Other than that, I'd rather be shark-wrestling.
