Commissioned by The Getty Museum on the occasion of their 2019 Getty Medal to the painter, draftsman, photographer, and bookmaker, Ed Ruscha. Utilizing The Getty Research Institute’s preservation and digitization of over a million images from Ed’s Streets of Los Angeles photo series, and excerpts from Jack Kerouac’s “On The Road,” this film puts together two of Ed’s major inspirations: Kerouac’s text and the city of Los Angeles.
“Ed Ruscha – Motorized Photographs Of Sunset Blvd. And Other L.A. Streets” is this week’s Staff Pick Premiere. Read more about it here: https://vimeo.com/blog/post/staff-pick-premiere-a-getty-commissioned-short-by-matthew-miller/
