ÒWhen he was working on Thirtyfour Parking Lots, Ruscha commissioned aerial photographer Art Alanis to take the photographs and told him to shoot all the empty lots he came across. While the images in the book are striking, especially those lots with herringbone patterning, Ruscha found even more to interest him in the photographs' unexpected visual features, such as the oil droppings on the ground revealed by photographing the lots without cars.Ó [Engberg & Phillpot - Ed Ruscha Editions, B5].
