A Place in the Sun: Photographs of Los Angeles by John Humble

  • With an essay by Gordon Baldwin

    Photographer John Humble has lived in Los Angeles for thirty years. In that time he has created a strong body of work that captures the unique architecture and natural environment of Southern California. A Place in the Sun is a celebration of Humble's distinctive view of Los Angeles—from the concrete channels of the Los Angeles River to the instantly recognizable cityscape through which that river winds.

    Gordon Baldwin is a former associate curator of photographs at the Getty Museum, the author of In Focus: Eugène Atget (Getty Publications, 2000) and Looking at Photographs: A Guide to Technical Terms (Getty Publications, 2009), and coauthor of Nadar/Warhol: Paris/New York and Roger Fenton: Pasha and Bayadère (Getty Publications, 1996).
