Art :: LA Marquees

I recently stumbled across Parisian Oc√©ane Buret's images of LA's most famous marquees and landmarks, and am absolutely in love.  The colors and typography are just beautiful, and did I mention she captured them with a simple point and shoot camera?  I have still never been to LA and these photos are just that much more of a reason for me to change that.

PS - If you like old marquis signs and live in the Midwest I highly recommend a trip to the American Sign Museum.  Total Americana.

  1. wow, these are all classic places and many are super close to where I live! Unfortunately, many of these locations are currently closed and I'm waiting for them to be renovated and reopened. I decided to take pictures of different locations for a before and after photo shoot. Maybe compare in a few years from now since downtown LA is changing so much. You should definitely head out here when you get a chance!
