    Roaming around L.A.’s westside.
    Vintage Persuasion

    The westside of Los Angeles provides the perfect backdrop for a vintage fable told through the lens of photographer Darren Ankenman. In this exclusive shoot for Aserica, Darren wanders with Vision model Emma Riskin through the streets of L.A.’s well-known ‘Pleasure-Dome’ area.

    Without knowing the exact location, the photographs lead the mind straight to trendy L.A. He captures a distinct American glamour; from the classic car and retro motel signage, to the perfectly styled vintage gems on the model. The natural light permeates each shot and draws you into a daydream afternoon on the streets of L.A.

    Known for his incredible photographs of models, musicians, bands, celebrities and portraits, Darren’s shots are an harmonious combination of the right light, subject and cool locations.
