“Visitors often think of LA as a glamorous place where people with big dreams, big personalities, and big money live fabulous lives. Hagen’s photographs show a less glitzy and more somber side to the city. The black-and-white images contain the usual suspects—palm trees, billboards, and bright lights cutting through the night sky—but his decidedly un-slick aesthetic exchanges sparkle for grain, and blue skies for grey horizons.”

I was very happy to have my Los Angeles work included as part of the first ever Slideluck event in Tokyo, the theme of which was "Lost." The event took place last Friday and also included live music and dance performances. http://slideluck.com/event/tokyo/
Photographers are to blizzards like cockroaches are to New York City, and I am no exception. Here are a few images taken during winter storm Jonas in Wilmington, DE over the course of the weekend. For other Visura folks who are on tumblr, I post fairly regularly to my tumblr blog, hagenerik.tumblr.com.
