A Collection of Los Angeles Palms by Marie-Jose Jongerius

Today palm trees and Los Angeles are the equivalents of each other and you can’t picture the strip without them. During the postwar era, sidewalk palms grew into symbols of the City of Angels. The Mexican fan palm became familiar fixtures on the horizon, generic landmarks, and the original skyscrapers of the horizontal metropolis. The entertainment industry magnified their stature by including the palms into advertisements, telecasts, television shows, movies, song lyrics, and music videos produced in Southern California. For ‘Los Angeles Palms’, author, Marie-José Jongerius revisited the most iconic and historic sights in the Los Angeles area to portray the palms which have all contributed to the iconic image of Los Angeles.
