For eight years, I’ve been documenting the same six (6) water run-offs in a transitional urban zone in my neighborhood in Los Angeles. During the rainy season, they are lush and green and have the appearance of small offerings from nature. In the summer, they dry up completely. Aside from the natural element, every night, taggers claim their space with graffiti. And then during daytime, the city workers come by and paint over the graffiti. There is a continuing dispute around these microcosms, over entitlements and space. These photographs are visual translations of the layers of time.


These photographs were exhibited at the Woodbury University Wedge Gallery in Glendale, California, curated by Louis Molino.
