Ted VanCleave’s tough photographic vision of Los Angeles 2

Architecture & Design · Visual arts

I deeply respond to photographer Ted VanCleave’s recent “Concrete Porn ~ Buildings & Bridges” series, a visual homage to that most unyielding of building mediums, concrete.

“My love of concrete architecture began when I visited the Pantheon in Rome. I was in awe of the beautiful, massive concrete dome which is still the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome, two thousand years after it was built,” writes VanCleave in a statement.

The Miami-based photographer’s impressive visual tour depicts L.A. not in  typical terms — soft blue sky, tall palm trees, limitless open space — but as an imposing, delineated and hard-core concrete jungle.
