The Traveller: An Interview With Maya Erdelyi

The Traveller An Interview With Maya Erdelyi 1

Maya Erdelyi does not live in Los Angeles. A handful of months ago, on a cold evening in Echo Park, the animation artist and filmmaker was enjoying one of her final nights in town with a cup of tea at her dining room table. “I guess I move around a lot,” she says with a smile. “It’s good for me—difficult sometimes, but ultimately, it’s very stimulating and inspiring. New Orleans, where I’m moving, is a culturally rich place: I’m excited to learn about it—and now I can officially say I’m Tri-Coastal.”

She’s moving to the Southeast to be with her boyfriend, the gallery director of the May Gallery & Residency. Maya has been in Los Angeles for three and a half years after what feels like an incredibly long life spent traveling and learning. Los Angeles is one of those places Maya never considered or imagined she’d move to but it was necessary that she come here and it will never not be a part of her. “I’m always going to come back here.

Whitewash, On LA’s Gemoetry

Whitewash, On LA's Gemoetry 1

Nicholas Alan Cope is a Los Angeles photographer who is a bit obsessed with our architecture. He has been chronicling the beautiful oddities for a while now and has catalogued them on his website. He has a very specific focus: very linear, very geometric, very 1970s, very LA stucco Bauhaus buildings. They feel cool but awkward and are almost alien as there is very little trace of Angelenos. It’s a remarkable examination that you’ll be able to see more of in Whitewash, Cope’s powerHouse book on these structures.

John Henry Baliton’s U.S.A.

John Henry Baliton's U.S.A. 1

John Henry Baliton is a Los Angeles based photographer who has an eye on the everyday American. He has an ability to find the most mundane, common, yet oddly extraordinary looks in normal American life and capture them on film. From baby tossing to house party twerking, he just observes and reports what he sees on film as a part of his U.S.A. series. He has an absolutely remarkable eye and, in surveying he’s done, you have to ask yourself where in the hell he sees these people. They’re so normal and so everyday but so incredibly unreal that you have to wonder how he found himself in their environments.
