Right Angles

This photographic series is a visual examination of my relationship to the work of a single Los Angeles architect.  The project is not meant so much to be an historical overview of the architect's life or work or a catalogue of the many structures he created in Los Angeles, but rather it is an experiential response to his buildings, a few of which hold the status of icon, as they occupy the city skyline and can be viewed today from its streets.  Just as important to me will be these buildings' relationship to nearby structures, evidence of how the city has grown up around what remains of Parkinson's prodigious output.  Of the more than 500 buildings that were built from his designs over 50 still stand, including LA City Hall, Bullock's Wilshire Department Store, Los Angeles Coliseum, and LA Union Station, the world's last great train station.
