《LA-LV》收錄了英國攝影師Antony Cairns在2014至2015年間，於洛杉磯與拉斯維加斯兩地拍攝的作品。Cairns的作品以實驗和另類的印刷方式著稱，《LA-LV》也是他的再一次創新嘗試。透過化學技巧以及對黑白底片的鑽研，Cairns製造出豐富且非常規的形式，發展成頗具特色的作品。書中所有照片皆用Agfa APX 35mm黑白底片拍攝，並反轉沖洗，使底片變得透明。這些經過化學處理的照片採雙色印刷，深黑疊加在銀墨之上，製造出金屬的效果，延續了Carins經典的鋁板印刷風格。異於我們熟知的大眾文化中的洛杉磯與拉斯維加斯，這組實驗性影像提供了一個非典型視角，以減法融合一系列漂白的大道與霓虹夜晚。

LA-LV brings together Antony Cairns' work from Los Angeles and Las Vegas in 2014-2015. Cairns' work is defined by its experimental processes and alternative printing methods, and LA-LV is yet another foray into innovation. With a practice rooted in chemical-based techniques and a devotion to black and white film, Cairns has developed a highly distinctive body of work that is now reproduced in yet another rich and unconventional format. All images in this volume were shot using Agfa APX 35mm film which was then reversal processed to make black and white transparencies. These chemically-altered photographs have hence been Duotone printed; deep black on silver ink, resulting in a metallic effect, remaining loyal to Cairns' characteristic style of printing on aluminium. These exploratory publications provide a highly unconventional perspective of the Los Angeles and Las Vegas we know from popular culture, melding discarded methodology with a series of bleached-out boulevards and neon nights.
