Katherine Avenue by Larry Sultan is a work of modern art photography. The book brings together three of Larry Sultan’s best known series. Made principally in the San Fernando Valley, these works Larry Sultan explored the domestic landscape of his childhood and adolescence by photographing and re-presenting photographs of his parents, their home, their friends and neighbors, and their experience of the American Dream.
Wandering further behind this Californian fabric, he photographed in suburban homes serving as sets in the pornographic industry. His work culminated in a series of tableau of Latino day labourers undertaking prosaic tasks on the peripheries of these suburban sites - the kind of places where, growing up, he would find his own sense of space and freedom.
This book, and many others, are unique to the library’s collection. Come out and see what you can find!
