Sixty feel below Crenshaw Boulevard in a future Metro Rail station

















Shot these for work at the future Leimert Park Station for the Crenshaw/LAX Line -- a light rail line that will run for a stretch under Crenshaw Boulevard. The giant tunneling machine arrived at the station this week after months of digging a mile-long tunnel from Exposition Boulevard to the north. 

I shot a lot of these as black and white because: 1) everything is better in black and white!; 2) I find the orange and yellow construction vests to be extremely distracting, and; 3) I was hoping to give the pics the classic feel of the historic black-and-white construction images we've all seen from decades ago. I also wanted the photos to feel spontaneous and as un-PR-like as possible. 

And I got a nice write-up for the pics over at Curbed LA. Thank you!
