Been in Los Angeles since 1981 and documenting it in words and images since May 2003 – there are thousands of photographs of Hollywood alone – and suddenly it gets old. The icons lose their power, and nothing is surprising any longer. California is as far west as you can go, and then you run out of America. There's no more of it. And California is the dead end. You're left with the residue.

Janus – sees the past – sees the future –
Dolores Del Rio – long gone –

These photographs were taken with a Nikon D200 – the lenses used were AF-S Nikkor 18-70 mm 1:35-4.5G ED, or AF Nikkor 70-300 mm telephoto. The high-resolution photography here was modified for web posting using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 software.
