Andy Romanoff is our correspondent in California for years now. Also a renowned photographer, he is deeply saddened by the drastic changes in our world of images. He just sent us this video on a movement that seems to be rising: the disappearance and closure of art galleries!
“This is a story made from pictures taken at galleries and photo fairs a few years ago, a time when things were good, but mixed with new pictures of Los Angeles as it is right now, the damages of the pandemic layered over the damages that were already visible, the homeless thousands, abandoned or ill served by inept or uncaring government. Driving through my city to make these pictures I was filled with sadness, feeling the pain of shopkeepers and small businesses abandoning their livelihood and their dreams. Galleries are hurting now and they are not alone.” – Andy Romanoff
