What is it about a city, a place so full of life, that can leave us feeling so utterly alone? “Lost Angels” is a series of my early works that manifest the isolating effects of urban life that is often overlooked.
This collection epitomizes what would become my signature cinematic take on street photography. A somber atmosphere subverts the idealistic preconception of a city filled with the glitz and the glamour, leaving a faint ominous feeling captured in the photographs. These lonely souls slither aimlessly throughout the city, broken yet pushing forward.
The works become a mirror. Just as I also roamed these streets, camera in hand, searching for a purpose, a passion, so do the individuals frozen in my photographs. Each subject persevering even after falling victim to the unforgiving nature of Los Angeles.
