Produktbeschreibung
"Traffic, wealth, poverty, violence, and other urban phenomena give way to valiant plant life where ivy thrive on the underside of the 405 and Glendale Freeway interchanges, and a tree in the foothills regenerates itself after a wildfire has parched its bark. Without its plant life and human respect for it, L.A. would be a vast desert void." Bruce Davidson In 2008, Bruce Davidson began exploring Los Angeles from the point of view of its exotic plant life. The arid climate, normally hostile to life, allows for an exceptional botanical diversity in L.A. County that reaches from the surrounding foothills and mountain wilderness to the Pacific Ocean. His images show us both the beauty and banality of urban existence around us.
