This week, Paris Photo will open in Los Angeles. We decided to devote an entire week of Le Journal not only to the event, but to photography all along the West Coast. Why? First, this is the most important event of its kind to be held in Los Angeles. Second, the photographic history of the region, with names like Edward Weston, Ansel Adams and Ed Ruscha, remains relatively unexplored. And third, with Getty Communications in Seattle (the only photo agency that’s doing fine), publishing houses like Taschen and Twin Palms, and the museums and galleries of Tucson, Santa Fe and Denver, the Western United States has some of the country’s most vibrant photo scenes.
