Every so often Graham and I spend a week looking at work from a specific region or country. This week, we will be showing you a whole bunch of photography from Los Angeles, the place we both currently call home.
Here is some work by our good friend, Michael Hernandez.

Two nights ago, Graham and I saw Catherine Opie, Alec Soth and the Rodarte sisters talk about their new collaborative book at the Hammer Museum. The lecture was fairly informal, but the result was a conversation that dealt with many facets of art and fashion; the contradictions and the similarities. The book combines photographs that Alec Soth took over a two week road trip that traced the Mulleavy sister’s influences through the California landscape, with the classically influenced studio portraits of Catherine Opie. Opie photographed professional models as well as a few of her friends that have appeared in some of her previous works. There was no conversation between Opie and Soth throughout the project, but the resulting images in the book clearly show us that Rodarte comes from specific place and time, and that, while their clothes may be hung in galleries, their vision stems from similar places as Opie and Soth; the American landscape and the many cultural idiosyncrasies that pocket themselves across the United States.
