Description
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 the corner between Sunset Boulevard and Crescent Heights Boulevard. It is a part of the famous "Sunset Strip", the mile and a half stretch of Sunset Boulevard passing through West Hollywood. A postal store occupies the western end of a Churrigueresque style commercial building in the 8000 block of Sunset Boulevard. Above the store, a large billboard of women in bikinis advertising Sands Casino Resort of Las Vegas is seen.
