Majestic Sprawl: Recent Los Angeles Photography at the Pasadena Museum of California Art will likely satisfy your craving. Uta Barth, Soo Kim, Martin Kersels, and Catherine Opie, among many others, succeed in conveying L.A. (and regions slightly beyond) with beauty, humor, and sensitivity. The porn industry, the ubiquitous mini mall, Beverly Hills, and nightlife - it all looks sexier, or at least more interesting, through their lenses. Also on view is Capturing Light: Masterpieces of California Photography organized by the Oakland Museum of California.
