What a pleasure to meet and photograph legendary West Coast artist Ed Moses at his Venice studio; I dropped by a few weeks ago with John Horn, who interviewed Moses for his KPCC-produced public radio show, The Frame. You can listen to the interview—as well as see a bunch more of the photos I shot—at the KPCC site. LACMA is currently exhibiting a retrospective of Moses’s work, up until August 2nd, 2015.

Snapshots of Venice, California

I have some touristy photographs from a trip I took last month to Los Angeles. For my fellow Chicagoans, enjoy the weather porn!

360 degree view of the Venice Beach boardwalk. Hey, in the light gray sweatshirt–is that Chicago-expat-current-Venice-resident Hayley Murphy? Hard to tell from this far away…

By rope, this badass drags his baby grand piano to the boardwalk every day.

I hadn’t been to the Venice Canals before; a very lovely site for a nocturnal stroll. For you “hate America first” folks, just try finding something like this in a foreign country. Why don’t you try the “Old Europe?” I didn’t think so. (Photos by Jim Newberry)
