The L.A.ndscape Sessions

Documentary Urban Film photography by Kwasi Boyd-Bouldin

From temporary views that only last the duration of a construction project to forever altered skylines and endless luxury apartments, these changes take years for their impact on a neighborhood’s composition to be fully appreciated. In some ways, these photo essays are an attempt to freeze time. The urban landscape changes so rapidly that structures can be built and destroyed leaving little to no trace of their existence. This is a product of the uninterrupted gentrification that has enveloped the entire city of Los Angeles over the past decade and that shows no sign of abating.

The objective of The L.A.ndscape Sessions is not to determine whether the changes taking place are good or bad, the purpose is to simply serve as a record of the city as it exists today.
