While You Weren't Looking is a pop up book that photographs the City of Angels in a way to show what most Angeleno's are missing. Most of the time, we are all too busy on our various technologies and need to get from point A to point B as quickly as we can.
If we could only take a moment and look around us, we would notice all the beautiful structures in Los Angeles.
The buildings in Los Angeles may not be the most glamorous, but if you take a moment and look, there is more to Los Angeles than the sparkles and glitter. There is a history.
This book is also an exploration in the idea of 'space'. This exploration of space goes beyong the physical world that Los Angeles resides, but also the space in which I have re-created the city with my 2-D images.
As an photographer, I find that I am creating images that share my point of view and 'my world' so to speak. I question that if my photography captures the 3-dimensional world and converts it into a 2-dimensional image, why can't I create a "3-dimensional" world with my imagery?
I have realized that I can depict my world any way I can, and this is the world I see.
This is the world I would like to share.
This is what I woud like to show you, while you weren't looking.
