In Japanese art, there’s a process called Kintsugi, a mending method which uses a mix of resin and gold powder to repair objects, accentuating the repair, rather than hiding it. Paying tribute to this tradition, artist Victor Solomon renovated a South L.A. basketball court using a similar method to fill in cracks in the court.

Los Angeles July 2020

Los Angeles July 2020

It seems as if every year, the number of backyard fireworks displays on July 4th increases exponentially, and in 2020, things have been truly insane. Using aerial footage captured by KTLA’s Sky5 chopper, editor Mike Dent turned Los Angeles into a scene right out of Blade Runner. The only thing missing is the Tyrell Corporation HQ.

Photographer Chris Pritchard’s vibrant time-lapse film takes us inside of one of the world’s busiest airports. If you’ve ever traveled through Los Angeles International, you know it’s a sort of organized chaos that moves an incredible 63 million people per year through its terminals and gates.

L.A.: 1940s vs 2016

The New Yorker traveled to the West coast to put together this clip, which does its best to compare the exact locations shot in 1940s stock footage of Los Angeles to the same places in modern times. Progress is great, but it’s kind of sad to see how little remains.
