LIMITED EDITION OF 50
Artist Amanda Friedman
Playa del Rey, CA I 2002
Shot of a freeway underpass near Los Angeles International Airport on a foggy night
The image is part of the "Night Landscapes" series.
While in her daytime Amanda is primarily working as a portrait photographer, shooting Hollywoods celebrities, in the nighttime she portraits her home-town Los Angeles in a very different light.
The 'Night Landscapes' series is utterly mesmerizing. Transporting us from our busy and chaotic lives, these photographs reveal a simple, beautiful, and a somewhat eerie solitude. By honing in on form, color and contrast, Amanda captures the peace, calm and beauty that we don’t always appreciate in our daily lives.
These photos always feature a strong light source, but there are no Hollywood effects here, all of Amanda’s photos are shot with medium and large format cameras with film using no digital manipulation.
