@payphonesoflosangeles NEW MEDIA DOCUMENTARY

For several years I’ve been photographing payphones. As sometimes happens with a documentary filmmaker, what started as a simple hobby evolved into a full-blown project. But rather than organizing my material into a traditional linear story, Instagram has become the medium for this ongoing exploration of the rapidly disappearing public phone in Los Angeles. Unless noted, all photos and videos are shot by myself on my Pixel 2/3 smart phone – adding a deliciously ironic subtext to the entire project.
Everything about the evidence suggests a car took out this payphone, and nearly did the same to the wrought iron fence behind it.

This looks like this may have had something installed in it after the phone was removed. Doesn't that look like a block of wood there in the middle? @screwyblooms - these remnants of your handiwork?

Here's an image that brings me a lot of joy. Taken last night by my best pal, @charliepecoraro who just happened upon a recent install from my favorite payphone artist, @screwyblooms ! The piece is still holding up well, 💐 ...
