Ed Ruscha’s Hollywood Boulevard: 1973 and 2002

Ed Ruscha’s work in both paintings and film are influenced by the vernacular of Southern California. In 1966, he published Every Building on the Sunset Strip, a book about capturing a continuous shot of a two and half mile section of the strip. In 1973, he likewise photographed the entire length of Hollywood Blvd. Here it is presented as a film with a recreation from 2002, highlighting the changes and similarities over the years. Fascinating.
