Los Angeles reached a benchmark in 2015 of being the most densely populated city in the United States with 10 million inhabitants. Already a significantly large number, the population is projected to increase to 15.5 million by 2025; as the area continues to attract people from around the country who wish to call it home. Who are the inhabitants of Los Angeles and where do they come from?
This series visually explores seven individuals who have contributed to this population boom, all hailing from different places. Represented in order are individuals from India, Kansas City, Kansas; San Francisco, California; Honolulu, Hawaii; Seoul, South Korea; Buffalo, New York and Las Vegas, Nevada. The project is specifically constructed so the viewer can view each portrait individually or all at once to represent the sprawling landscape of Los Angeles.
