This Side of Paradise: Body and Landscape in Los Angeles Photographs is a fascinating exploration of the dynamic relationship between the city and the art of photography from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. In contrast to traditional chronological studies, this beautifully illustrated volume takes a unique and highly revealing thematic approach to the subject, focusing on landscape and the body. Featuring more than 170 photographs by a wide variety of image-makers, This Side of Paradise casts new light on both Los Angeles and the photographic practices within it.
