Now & Then
1973 & 2002 Ed Ruscha’s Hollywood Boulevard (Modern Architecture in Los Angeles)
Artist Ed Ruscha’s fascination with the vernacular architecture of Los Angeles began over fifty years ago and continues to this day. In the 1960s, Ruscha started documenting the building facades along the city’s major roads by taking continuous photographs with a 35mm camera mounted to a moving vehicle. His first related publication, “Everything Building on the Sunset Strip” (1966), captures an extensive stretch of the famous thoroughfare. The Streets of Los Angeles Archive, now preserved at the Getty Research Institute, includes Ruscha’s comprehensive views of avenues throughout the region.

Here’s a really beautiful shot of John and Lou by Joel Meyerowitz, I hope he doesn’t mind me sharing it here on tumblr, for all you non facebook users.
"I’ve been looking for this picture for days, ever since I heard about Lou Reed’s death. I shot it in 1968 on 5th ave, just casual shot of an interesting looking guy, only to discover later on that it was Lou Reed and John Cale.”
