A passion for California’s heart and soul inspired curator Michael Rababy in this collection of 110 California-based photographers, revealing a shared appreciation for all that makes the west coast state the dreamy place it is. What started out as an exhibition earlier this year is now a hefty, rather luxurious coffee table book of images and words that is more than a love letter to California, but a snapshot of contemporary photography from the region.
From the photojournalistic to the fantastical, the desert to the sea, the nostalgic to the futuristic, the political to the pleasuredome, the gritty to the glam, their images are as varied stylistically as the state is geographically, and reflect the people, places, and personality that help define California.
