The Open Road

May 5, 2010

Here’s an understatement of the decade: if Angelenos had a genie in a bottle, one of the three wishes would involve less traffic. Photographer Jeffrey Aaronson’s work reflects this hopeless cause in his exhibition, Driving Desire, which opened at Fabrik Projects L.A. on April 24th. The series breaks down the  freeway system into its two components, the drivers and the actual structure of the freeway.  His black and white pics feature a car-less freeway, which is reason enough to be amazed! (How on earth did he snap the shots in daylight hours?)  Hit the highway and head down to the Arts District to catch the exhibition through May 16th.

    Wow, I LOVE these photographs. I don’t know how he made them disappear, but the edges look like old fashion film. Great concept. I’m headed downtown to see them in person (hope the 405 is empty).
