These black and white infrared photographs, taken by artist Alex Leykin, find a way to capture the prominent and beloved city of Los Angeles, California in a newly unique light. The infrared effect brings out the drama in the picturesque scenes of various notable Los Angeles landmarks including the Greystone Mansion, Griffith Observatory, Church of the Good Shepherd, Venice Canal, and the city of Los Angeles itself. Each landmark can be viewed from different perspectives through our moody infrared black & white and color photographs.
The beauty of infrared photography is that it creates a whole new world from a world that already exists. The effect adds a sharp contrast to the clouds hanging above the Greystone Mansion Garden, and deepens the shadows cast by the looming palm trees, giving the image an ominous mood. The water of the Venice Canal appear to be so still and crystal clear that it produces a perfect mirror image of the foliage and houses on the shoreline.
Our infrared Los Angeles artworks are available as fine art giclée prints, with the option of having them matted. The artworks are printed on an exhibition quality photo paper that produces rich, saturated colors.
