I came back from the states with 35 exposed rolls of bw film. Took me only 2 days actually to develope it all and a week to scan it. All together there are 1275 negatives i scanned of which i will probably post 400-500 here so i decided to split the whole in 3-4 blog posts.

here is the first part.

  1. Dude, that’s a shitload of photos! I really like the ghettoblaster one, the people looking at the breakdancers again/still and the rare corner shot!
    Looking at this entry is giving me the travellers itch! Looking forward to seeing more.

  2. you are really fast in developing and scanning all of these rolls. must have been nightshift after nightshift. like suzan said, it’s giving me a travel itch.
    nice photographs and as always good comments too. it’s a bit like walking around there too. can’t wait to see pt.2

  3. I love the palm trees – there’s something about them that really add to the pictures, or maybe it’s just because I’m not used to seeing them a lot.

    So many shots made me laugh out loud including this:

    You’ve definitely captured the essence of LA. Good stuff!

  4. think you documented the atmosphere quite well … as Tanya already mentioned .. all those palms, .. the typical people and stuff for L.A. .. some really precious shots .. some are just crazy or funny, .. some make you thinking .. so I’m looking forward to the next one .. to be honest I thought there will be more right now :D … until next entry, have a nice one!

    every expression is perfect.
    great, down to the shadow.

  7. Dude. This entry reminds me of browsing porn on 56K. The image loads up from top to bottom, but never the whole way cause someone at home accidentally picks up the telephone. Not saying it’s ever happened to me, but you get the point. Damn great stuff mate! I cannot wait for the Las Vegas photos. Are you going to turn this into a book? I know I’d buy!

    Cheers from Toasty Manila!

    It’s interesting seeing LA through your eyes. Looking forward to the rest of what you shot here.

    And I’m sad I missed you! Next time. :)

  12. http://severinkoller.at/blog/wp-content/gallery/los_angeles_1/IMG17684s.jpg Love the KFC bucket. It’s things like this that make life worth living.

    http://severinkoller.at/blog/wp-content/gallery/los_angeles_1/IMG17678s.jpg This is pretty awesome as well.

    My two favourite shots!

    $7k for a lens? Madness

  13. Lol @ Sonny’s comment. Can’t wait for the WSOP shots – James Akenhead from our club is on the final table!

    Will you be shooting the WSOPE for Ace?

    Comment by James — July 31, 2009 @ 2:58 pm
  14. the shot of the dead seal on the beach is fantastic – the girls look so concerned while the boys are almost laughing it off. also love the mother with the disposable camera and the guy asleep on the plane with his mouth wide open, cracked me up. there’s many more but i’d be here all day! can’t wait to see the next entry :)

  18. Hey Severin,

    I was one of the Irish girls at the hostel, randomly remembered you today and found the blog!

    Your shots are fantastic they really capture the different sides of LA, the sides that a lot of Europeans only seem to notice.

    I’m delighted to be a (small) part of it, I will definitely be checking the Vegas ones once they are up.

    It was nice to meet you,

    probably mexican workers for hire?
    there are pakistans who do the same thing here in Athens, sit all day at some corner of a street, waiting for someone to hire them. heartbreaking that they don’t have steady jobs.
