TRAFFIC!

The French writer and philosopher Jean Baudrillard once wrote of the freeways of Los Angeles as being "ideally suited to the only truly profound pleasure, that of keeping on the move." Indeed, nowhere is the pleasure of keeping on the move more profound than in a city whose freeways rarely offer it.
Architecture photographer Benny Chan documents Los Angeles' traffic problems. Shot over a few years during various helicopter trips, the photographs give information about the extents of LA's car problem.
