In his new book of photographs Tobias Bärmann goes on the search for the hidden sides of Los Angeles, City of Dreams. He traverses the gigantic metropolis, designed to accommodate cars, on a bicycle. By slowing down he discovers the aesthetics of transition and incompletion outside of the city's glamorous surface. Many of the motifs are evidence of the past acts of unknown protagonists. With a cryptic eye for the poetry of the ephemeral and the supposedly trivial, Bärmann steers our attention to everything that our civilisation seems to evoke accidentally.
