24 hours Los Angeles is not a book and exhibition about the city of L.A. It’s a unique vision of one city shown through the eyes of young photographer Karl Hab. After many trips to L.A., Karl wanted to share his love and admiration for this town and what it means to him. During those various experienc- es in the City of Angels, he tried to capture a certain essence of this city from a different point of view, especially using aerial shots.
There is a special feeling when you come to L.A. and it starts when you exit the airport. It’s something so special that it’s hard to explain with words, especially when it comes to the beauty and the buzz of this city – which is why Karl used his lens to express himself.
The photos are organized by chronological order – starting with the beginning of the day and its cold tones to its end with the warm ones – showing the city through many angles and many shades.
The book and exhibition is about a single vision, a unique feeling of a city which changes every day. This is why Karl’s photos re ect the sensitivity of the light, the colorimetry of the landscapes and a topic he holds dear: colors, planes, cars, and many more.
After reading and viewing 24 hours Los Angeles, you may see something different in a city you thought you knew so well before.
The introduction of the book is written by the New York based artist Daniel Arsham.
There are no page numbers, but hours corresponding to these times: morning, noon, afternoon and evening. You’ll also find GPS coordinates that represent the captions.
