About the book

Drive SoCal – the mind wanders to an image of the T-Bird, red, naturally red, top down, the sound of Motorpsycho’s “Go to California” obliterated by the wind. California evokes knee-jerk clichés and little else. According to Neil Postman, the only remarkable thing about California are the earthquakes. This can be refuted, but to do so requires the ability to see past the veneer of stereotypes, and the will to grasp the underlying elements beneath them. That’s the thing about California – even its superficiality is not truly superficial. Of course, you need a car all the same.
Drive SoCal – from Santa Cruz to Orange County on Highway One, in a car with less history than a lawnmower, an endless stream of adverts on the radio. As a photographer, one has relinquished the choice of medium and settled on vision. Nonetheless a story is told, photography chatters on in Multicolor about unwavering confrontation; the photographer engages in dialogue with colour and form. The harsh midday light etches out the nuances, and from the blue emerge the contours of California’s cultural universe. In Venice, the concrete pushes inexorably forward like the extension of the pounding waves over the quay before expiring in eight-laned traffic arteries, the beating heart of LA on the horizon. By the wayside lies the legacy of humankind embodied in horizontal and vertical lines; where the geometry of profane buildings reveals their aesthetic, the shutter clicks.
