About this blog

PARIS, LA blog is about the magic accidents of life. It’s about artists, writers, photographers, musicians and designers that cross our mind, and our heart for a day, a season, a life! It refers to a vital substance that nourishes, and inspires our soul day by day. A sort of vivid shadow that gives birth twice a year to a print magazine named PARIS, LA.

The result is unnavigable, and while lost searching for an exit, I […]

EXHIBITION: MARTEN ELDER AT TIF SIGFRIDS

Marten Elder’s new photographs on view at Tif Sigfrids in Hollywood are curious and lustrous images. Elder photographs mundane spatial configurations–driveways, lawns, planters–and through deft digital manipulation amplifies the ambient colors of each plane, creating surreal and iridescent chromatic combinations. The edits flatten the image, so cacti and dark garden shadows look like puddles of […]
