About Post Truth:
Turning the spatial flotsam of the Anthropocene, or what architect Rem Koolhaas famously referred to as “junkspace,” into candy-colored dreamscapes, photographer George Byrne depicts the gritty urbanism of Los Angeles in sublime otherworldliness. Arriving a decade ago, the Australian artist was immediately enthralled by the sprawling cityscape, mesmerized by the way the sunlight transformed it into two-dimensional, almost painterly abstractions. In his Post Truth series (2015–20), Byrne reassembles his photos of the urban landscape into striking, ascetic collages of color and geometric fragments, creating postmodernist oases in the metropolis.
This vibrantly illustrated catalog showcases more than 60 images from the series and features text by the design writer Ian Volner, as well as a foreword by Byrne himself.
George Byrne (born 1976) graduated from Sydney College of the Arts in 2001, and traveled extensively before settling in Los Angeles in 2010. Today, he is internationally recognized for his large-scale photographs shot with medium-format film. Byrne has exhibited internationally and is currently represented by galleries in Sydney, Shanghai, Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver, Oslo, Mumbai and Taipei. In 2020, he was named the Minimalist Photographer of the Year.

About Everything Now: Lessons from the City-State of Los Angeles:
An exhilaratingly new understanding of the United States’ most confounding metropolis—not just a great city, but a full-blown modern city-state.
Los Angeles is not just the place where the American dream hits the Pacific. (It has its own dreams.) Not just the vanishing point of America’s western drive. (It has its own compass.) Functionally, aesthetically, mythologically, even technologically, an independent territory, defined less by distinct borders than by an aura of autonomy and a sense of unfurling destiny—this is the city-state of Los Angeles.
