Hooray for Hollywood.
"contemporary photographer terry richardson presents 'terrywood', a visualization of the images which comprise his hometown of hollywood, at ohwow gallery. the installation includes twenty-five new photos investigating issues of celebrity in addition to the kitsch and character which symbolize the more gritty reality of the los angeles aesthetic. the photographer's reinterpretation of this (in)famous city is a celebration and illustration of a place which seems to be both very familiar and also raw to him-- as if these locals and characters had been just discovered rather than ones in which he had been raised with."
