Seeing Both “Sunshine and Noir”

Photo by Thomas Michael Alleman

Lens recently did a post on Thomas Michael Alleman’s “Sunshine and Noir,” a paean to the urban landscapes of Los Angeles and New York. The series was originally created in the wake of 9/11, and the Holga photos have a melancholy bent.

The series is great and mesmerizing especially since they were shot using a toy camera. If you know Los Angeles — and I mean know it, beyond the glossy veneer of freeways and palm trees — you will really recognize the city’s quirky and incongruous tableaus.
