It’s a ghost highway in the middle of LA! Not the result of road closures, the apocalypse, a zombie scare, or a massive increase in the price of petroleum, this series of car-less highways are the brainchild of photographer Tom Baker. Curious as to what a traffic-less Los Angeles would look like, Baker went ahead and created this vision through the wonders of photoshop. The result is a series of images that are eerily calming.
Baker’s other photo essays include National Parks and the LA Guardian Angels. The car-less LA was a school project for his photography studies at Brooks. A great bookend to this piece is Eve Mosher’s Insert __Here, which takes urban spaces and revitalizes them with the magic of photoshop.
