A photographer with an eye for L.A.'s wild side


There is something fantastic about a photographer noted for her images of the L.A. punk rock scene turning her eye to the wild beauty of the garden. Ann Summa is spending a year in Southern California's community gardens for The Times, working with her husband, writer Jeff Spurrier, to document the people and the plantings of these public plots.

The couple have more dispatches to come, but now that the series has hit the six-month mark, we decided to compile a photographic look back, selecting some of Summa's images that capture the landscapes' beauty and the spirit of the people who nurtured it.

Look for future installments on this blog every Wednesday, and in the meantime enjoy this 35-image photo gallery.
