    When we last spoke to Ted VanCleave, he was expressing his love for concrete in a photo series titled Concrete Porn ~ Buildings & Bridges. Today he sends us new images, this time focusing on the Hollywood sign. The sign has been photographed countless times and every day dozens of people try to get up close to get a nice picture of the iconic former advertisement, but Ted's been photographing the sign at super-close range (with the permission of the authorities) and from a variety of unique perspectives for a few years now with interest results. He's releasing these images as a print series called Hollywood Sign: New Perspectives today. More info on his website.
