Intense, Graphic Photos ‘Whitewash’ Buildings in Los Angeles

Nicholas-Alan-Cope_Photography

Los Angeles-based photographer Nicholas Alan Cope shoots architectural subjects as abstract still lifes. For the buildings he shot in Los Angeles (made into a book called Whitewash, published by PowerHouse Books), he strips all detail from the structures, leaving portraits consisting only of lines, planes and shapes. The intense, black-and-white images provide a fresh and simplified view of everyday structures in a sprawling, complex metropolitan city.
