The second volume in aerial photographer Light’s ambitious series of books with Radius that document the contemporary West, LA Day/LA Night presents two contrasting views of greater Los Angeles, shot from low altitudes and oblique angles. Each book in the series uses a different innovative binding structure to present two bodies of work. In this case, the Z-shaped binding opens from either end, with a shared board in the center. A simple and elegant presentation of this powerful work.
