I have always had a fascination with light fixtures, especially chandeliers. Adam Tenenbaum has created this beautiful art installation at his home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Silver Lake, CA. This place has been one of the hidden gems of Los Angeles and I love coming to this place. He has collected and restored over thirty vintage light fixtures, which he has placed artfully on this century old sycamore tree. Adorned like Christmas ornaments, each chandelier is unique and together, they create a new Los Angeles landmark that you must see.

Vincent Lamouroux’s Projection at the Sunset Pacific Motel

French Artist Vincent Lamouroux has transformed Silver Lake’s Sunset Pacific Motel, also known as the Bates Motel, into a temporary art installation. Entitled ‘Projection’, the artist seeks to revive the dilapidated building (and its surrounding palm trees) by giving it a new life: “The idea is to disrupt the way we perceive things by giving some special attention to this one place.” Although the white paint shall slowly fade away and the motel will eventually be demolished to give way to a new apartment complex, it has allowed for the community to enjoy and engage in the beauty that is art.

I had the honor and privilege of photographing Lawrence and Claire’s Wedding at St. Lawrence Martyr Church and the Palos Verdes Art Center. Their special day also included a “paebaek”, which is a traditional Korean ceremony where the bride and groom paid respects to their parents and elders. For more information about booking Richard Manirath Photography™ for your special day, please contact us for the rates.

We look forward to working with you soon!
