In the Dark: Los Angeles at Night
There is a tranquility that radiates throughout the city after-hours that can be both beautiful and lonely. Places that are normally bustling with people stand uninhabited, creating a surreal landscape that most never see. Inspired by the late night/early morning shifts I worked in the past, these photos hope to capture a sense of the emptiness that envelops the city during the night, but also highlights some of the ways people go about their lives on this nocturnal schedule. By documenting the ways people get to work, their places of employment, and the resources they depend on, this series of photographs aims to reveal a side of the city that is often taken for granted.
Public transportation is a big part of life for many who work the night shift so I felt that it was important to photograph aspects of a late-night commute.

Other businesses such as gas stations, 24-hour drug stores and laundromats are critical resources for those who need to go about their lives while most of the city sleeps.
