Lance Shigematsu was raised in the desert town of Indio, California and currently lives in Los Angeles. His work is personal and explores the culture and dreamy beauty of the city and neighborhoods in the West, Central and East Side of Los Angeles. The combination of romantic floral elements, boosting electric color and precision urban geometrics are vividly present in nostalgic abundance . A three hour drive and into a labyrinth of canyons over the San Andreas Fault Line is where Lance would shoot Gargantua Part 1, a meticulously crafty double exposure series shot on hiking trips through a maze of time, a real story North of the Salton Sea. The spiritual and mystical elements of this land would shape new ideas, inspire philosophies on framing and approach.
