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.
