Photographer and filmmaker Nancy Baron’s newest monograph The Good Life > Palm Springs, published by Kehrer Verlag, offers us a look into the celebrated Hollywood hideaway. Baron, who describes Palm Springs as her second home, tells the story of this lush resort town beyond what a tourist’s eyes can see. From the red checkered sports jacket on a cherry red sports car to floor-to-ceiling leopard print, the color saturated world of Palm Springs is a sure path to the American Dream.
An accompanying exhibition of the work is currently on view at dnj Gallery in Santa Monica through November 1, 2014.
