Back in 2006, Bryan Formhals was a listless screenwriter-turned-flâneur, wandering the streets of Los Angeles armed with a rangefinder and buoyed by dreams of a film he was never to write. Instead his hours traipsing about Hollwood turned into this photo series, Los Angeles 26, an ethereal study of fleeting moments and contrasts caught on camera.
I’ve watched enough films set around these star-studded streets to feel as though I too know them well; the old familiar palm trees standing up to attention in blinding sunlight and the neat concrete sidewalks (see, I even know the parlance!). Bryan’s images have that memory-catching quality, providing a picture of the sort of snap-shots our minds take; sometimes blurry or vague, sometimes vivid and precise, but always atmospheric.
