The question of how to photograph Los Angeles – a place that moves in shifts and perpetual motion with no real center – is central to CROSHER’s recent work. This project investigates LAX and its surrounding infrastructure as a place of non-center and transience, a metaphor for Los Angeles, a city where movement is “not a walking-motion; it breathes in anonymous transit, spread and wide, seen through passing cars or from airplane windows.” Thirty-one photographs taken between 2001 and 2005 will be on view; each photograph was shot from inside a different hotel or motel surrounding Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Within each photograph CROSHER records the descent of an airplane into LAX capturing the tension between peripheral details of interiors and focused images outside the window, animating potential narratives about the room or the world beyond.
