Publisher Note

Los Angeles is a centrifugal city, fundamentally American in its tendency toward the periphery. So, Isolated Houses focuses on the urban sprawl’s outer frontier. Here, 150 miles outside the city, the built environment comprises a handful of rudimentary structures. Although with isolated cubes at the edge of the infinite plane of the desert. The dwellings that dot the landscape seem temporary and toylike, but are the center of these photographs, the reason for their being.
