Portrait of The West Coast

"Portrait of The West Coast," part of my "Portrait of" series, dives into the striking differences and rich history of Arizona and California. The series features seven photos, each capturing a distinct slice of the West Coast life. Highlights include "Biosphere 2," showing the eco-dreams of the 1970s, and "Motel," located just minutes from Venice Beach, revealing the sharp contrasts within Los Angeles neighborhoods. From these urban scenes to the serene beauty of National Parks, this collection showcases the varied stories that make up The West Coast. It brings together cultural landmarks, historical moments, and personal connections, offering a window into the region's unique character.
