"Bright hot incessant clear light, casting blackety-black shadows from brutalist blocks that take the history of architecture and silently reduce and contain it like lunar tombs. Or Aztec temples morphed into foam-core cartoons." (Rick Owens).
"As I shot, I worked back through each compositional phase that I have begun years before. For me this validated that my decisions had been deliberate and that my ideas had endured my changing tastes. The project has been cyclical. The first images, which were the most stark, are very similar to the most recent. Whitewash is Los Angeles at its most stripped down and honest." (Nicholas Alan Cope)
