In Los Angeles, the bus stops are fitted with a black metal screen, perforated with one-quarter inch holes. Peering through these partitions, Anthony Hernandez glimpsed moments of everyday life in abstraction, and from 2017–18 began photographing these scenes in a project that would later become Screened Pictures. More than 25 years after his topographical ‘Public Transit Areas’ series, which documented people at bus stops in Southern California, Hernandez turns his lens outwards, to the world beyond the bus stops. Screened Pictures creates a vision of Los Angeles that is simultaneously recognizable and uncanny; a simple premise that invites a whole new way of seeing the world.
The volume includes a short story by Lucia Berlin and afterword written by Erin O’Toole, associate curator of photography at SFMOMA.
