We are used to seeing Los Angeles and most of California through a bright sparkling lens, which highlights the glamour and the beauty of its temperate climate. Nicholas Alan Cope captures a completely different view of the city of angels. His images are stark black and white with sharp contrast and harsh textures. Despite their darkness and edge his images maintain a subtle beauty through their unique viewpoint of an overlooked subject matter. Mundane architecture and concrete structures are transformed into canvases or expanses of light and shadow. Cope’s images were recently collected and published in a book by powerHouse Books entitled Whitewash.
