Read This: Thomas Pynchon "Inherent Vice"

Blow your mind! 

Through a drug smoke haze, Thomas Pynchon's "Inherent Vice" takes us on a wild ride through late 1960's Southern California, painting a perfect picture of our post-hippie youth. At times the landscapes seem apocalyptic, but in reality they are just astute depictions of sprawl and decay juxtaposed with acerbic wit.

Below are photos inspired by the wordscapes of Thomas Pynchon.
