Lovechild and Blok Design are excited to announce the release of ARCHAEOLOGIES: LA, a stunning book of black and white urban photographs by acclaimed Italian photographer Renato D’Agostin with text by urban historian Norman Klein. A Lovechild Collaboration between Blok Design and Furlined, the 79-page book takes readers on a visual journey of Los Angeles.
ARCHAEOLOGIES: LA is the first of three still photography volumes capturing the evolving identities of influential megalopolises Los Angeles, Istanbul and Mexico City.
“By exploring the intersection between our idealized images of these cities and their hidden, underlying personas, the still photography in the ARCHAEOLOGIES series offers viewers a deeper understanding of the evolution of city life," says Diane McArter, Founder of Lovechild and Furlined.
Celebrated urban critic, historian and author Klein examines D’Agostin’s use of light, and charts the emotional architecture of LA and its evolution into “New Byzantium” – a crossroad between worlds.
