Piece description from the artist
To capture this angle of the iconic Capitol Records building, I walked under the freeway past a homeless encampment and up a steep hill, balanced on top of a road barrier and shot over a chainlink fence with my telephoto lens, all while trying not to disturb another photographer doing a full on photoshoot with a model, assistant and lighting setup on the side of the road. It was quite the adventure!
