dropped into a hollywood night
I love Hollywood. There is a constant sense of sadness. Hollywood is supposed to represent the American Dream, our hopes, our desires, our stumbling blocks that we are inevitably supposed to somehow overcome. Yet too often it represents our loss, our despair, our inability, our lack of connection to the rest of the world, a world that has no concept of this foreign place anyway. Where are these people going? What are they doing? They are the faceless and transparent. They walk the sidewalks that are covered in stars and just as the bright lights that fade they too blur into oblivion. Black and white photos taken in Hollywood September (c) 2009 Deborah Jaffe
