Bastard Artist Los Angeles

I live and work in Los Angeles, California.
I love it here, I call it home.

It used to be better five or six years ago when trash flooded the streets, now everything is sad and white-washed. Los Angeles has changed for the worst and I hate it.

I lust for destruction and beauty.

"I started my photographic journey in the early nineties — 1993 to be exact. At this time I took up a knack for documentary photography while shooting photographs of graffiti and my mother’s transition to become a male. I often refer to my portraiture work as “ugly photographs of beautiful people” I like to explore the mind of my subjects; I inquire about their background and upbringing to shed light on who they are. I find myself intrigued by how society perceives them and how they perceive themselves. The people in this series all identify differently. I have no hang-ups with a person’s sexual preference or orientation; to me, we are all humans, and whether we are in search of happiness, companionship or equality, I feel we are all allowed to be individuals — Individuals that need not be judged, defined or made as outcasts. The camera has given me incredible access to people and places, and this is what makes my photography truly rewarding and fulfilling. Furthermore, my ultimate goal is to redefine beauty with an influx of images geared towards provoking thought and raising awareness within the art photography community and worldwide.” -Marco Romano Bhimani
