The night skyline of Los Angeles can be a bit of a Rorschach. Some people see the ugly expanse of urban sprawl; miles and miles of seething smog filled streets, jammed with cars and teaming with people. Others, see abstract beauty in the intricate array of streetlamps, headlights, and passing planes – a whole galaxy of lights onto itself.
No one angle can capture the essences of Los Angeles, which is why photographer Colin Rich created this multidimensional time lapse. Each vantage point offers a different perspective and new insight into the city’s landscape. So in this sea of light, what side do you see?
