El Nino has changed the landscape of Los Angeles from sun kissed metropolis to a city reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest. With more than 2 billion gallons of water contained within the city, hopes of the drought-ending storm being successful are high. This landscape, that is seldom blessed with showers this intense, faces many challenges. From interrupted commutes, roadside flooding, 10ft swells, and sporadic mudslides; it's safe to say the city and it's inhabitants have their work cut out of for them if they hope to weather the storm.
On assignment for LA Weekly, I made these photographs during and after the El Niño storm made landfall in order to document the affect it had on the city. http://www.laweekly.com/slideshow/the-wrath-of-el-ni-o-6461894/5
