About This Project:
This series started with an article in the LA Times discussing the state of the auto dealership trade during the 2008-2010 recession. It prompted me to go and see these facilities and the damage that was done to that industry and photograph it. Since I shot this project, many have become used car lots, and some were knocked down for new businesses. Many are still vacant. This series was done over a one year period, shot with 8x10 film.
