Drive-by Shooting by Scot Sothern

03 OCT 2012 | Posted By: NickJ

Now displaying 1 - 15 of 15

If you're looking for pretty ladies, tales of adventurous foolhardy youth and cute dog shots of pugs in handbags, then we apologise as the work of LA-based photographer Scot Sothern is the farthest thing from it in the entire universe. Seriously. 

Gaining notoriety for his brutally confronting 2011 photobook Lowlife, a documentation of his time spent with LA street hookers back in the '80s and '90s, Sothern's pre-occupation with the darker half of American society continued with his series Drive-by Shooting. 

Cruising LA in the AM, Beverly Hills, Sunset Boulevard and Hollywood Boulevard in the backseat of a mate's car, Sothern uses ample amounts of flash to capture moments, faces, bodies and more in a grimly portrayed slice of American street life. 

To say the photography of Scot Sothern is brilliant may be a statement subject to brutal argument. To say his work is fascinating however is, in my eyes, undeniable.
