David Benjamin Sherry's "Paradise Fire" at Moran Bondaroff Gallery in Los Angeles

“My interest lays in the changing American landscape, and this new series of pictures reflects my unease. Our land is a direct reflection of human existence – our past, our contemporary lives, and ultimately our impact.

Paradise Fire will be on view until December 12 at Moran Bondaroff Gallery, 937 N. La Cienega Boulevard Los Angeles, CA
