"I recall a scene from an old film with the famous clown Grock, when he sat down to play the piano, and pulled the piano towards him! In that same line of thought, for me a good pair of shoes is as important as a camera and lenses. I've spent hours and hours walking around, looking at places from every angle, waiting for that crucial moment when the light is perfect. I like to photograph buildings both old and new, as well as places that have been abandoned or forgotten, and that merit more than a fleeting glance." Denis Freppel

Born in the Paris suburb of Suresnes in 1938, Denis Freppel is a photojournalist and globetrotter whose travels have taken him through the United States, South-East Asia and Europe. After living in California, he set out to photograph the distinctive architecture of its buildings. He has since spent nearly 30 years exploring the length and breadth of the city of Los Angeles, photographing industrial buildings, public buildings and private homes dating from the 1880s to the 1940s. The fruits of his labors are published in this sumptuously illustrated volume - complete with appendices providing technical details of the buildings pictured - that every architecture buff will want to own.
