Peter Baker photographs urban space and its consequences. A travelogue and a study of social relations, the pictures of the ‘Current Treatment’ series taken in and of Los Angeles are about sites and people, and their collisions.

A photographer of the spatial turn, he records urban sites and the built environment as social spaces and barely inhabited stages of life.
