Cadillac Desert (2016)

Much of the history of Los Angeles has always been about water. This project casts a cursory glance at a small part of it.

It was photographed in the area of the now mostly dry Owens Lake, which held considerable amounts of water until 1913. Then much of it was diverted into the LA Aqueduct in order to be brought to Los Angeles. While containing at least some water today, it is still the larges single source of dust pollution in the United States.
