Description
This is a vintage print signed, titled, and dated in pencil by the artist on verso; artist's wet stamp also on verso.
The extensive portfolio of photographic artist Carol Westwood (1942-2011), a native New Yorker who lived in Los Angeles for many years, includes a diverse array of subjects: animals, nudes, American and European cities, and portraits. Additionally, she worked on special and still photography for numerous motion picture and television productions in Hollywood; the archive of her entertainment and celebrity images was distributed internationally by Gamma, Liaison International, Stone Images, and Getty images from 1988-2003.
View of S. Main Street where it meets W. 2nd Street (background, right) in Downtown Los Angeles, where homeless individuals are seen residing on the sidewalk. In the foreground on the left is the reflection of the view captured in the rear-view mirror of the photographer's car, showing the exterior of a few different buildings, such the Linda Lea Theater, the California State Building, and Hotel Barclay. Photograph dated August 1990.
