In the thicket of Southern California’s sprawl, Wilshire runs west to east, linking Santa Monica, Century City, and Downtown Los Angeles. Dense with midcentury- modern architecture, glass skyscrapers, and looming Art Deco landmarks, the street displays the fragmented diversity of an ever-changing geographic landscape. Gaut began to photograph the street’s emblematic buildings on subsequent trips to the city and his first book, entitled Wilshire Blvd, is the coalescence of over a hundred images spanning the course of four years in which Gaut would engage with the local scenery. Wilshire Blvd offers a surreal reimagination of the eras and institutions that define Los Angeles.
