One of the most wonderful sights to behold is the City of Angels looking like a tiny buzzing miniature of itself as you’re flying into LAX. Palm trees and power lines reach up into the deep blue sky while a perfect summer lingers just around the corner. This is a portrait of a city, which, once the nurturing sun has sunk down over the Pacific Ocean, is far from rushing off to sleep. As the light fades, print shops, old warehouses, and rooftops turn into vivid nightlife locations – this is the LA underground scene. Our story beings when we run into photographer A.J. Herrera, known for his portrayal of the LA nightlife scene.
One minute you’re quietly enjoying a cup of joe in a coffee shop, and the next you’re introduced to a local underground party organizer and whisked off on the eventful trip through nocturnal LA documented in this photo story. Our adventure lasted until the next morning.
