The diptych is part of a larger body of work called the "Los Angeles Project" undertaken by the artist in 2012. Each depicts an aspect of the varied terrain of the larger Los Angeles area, from the ocean to the mountains and canyons. Chiara uses super-sized custom-built cameras to record landscapes that are often nondescript in their origins but otherworldly their realization.
