City x 60: Askew II on LA

Photographer G L Askew II often wanders the city of Los Angeles to discover places both old and new, such as the iconic City Hall in DTLA and modern homes near Mulholland Drive. This video presents them all through a collection of rapidly moving photographs from G L Askews II’s archive. See if you can spot one of his favorite images in the mix: It’s the end of a staircase overlooking the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. This lookout is so quintessentially Californian that it became the photographer’s “I made it to California” landmark.

G L Askew II is a photographer originally from Atlanta, Georgia, who is currently based in Los Angeles. His work has appeared in Complex, Rolling Stone, Good and Maxim.
