In 2005 Klein began to photograph homes and cityscapes in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles. Silverlake has gone through a number of transformations since it was first settled during the “first westward march of the suburbs” in the 1920’s. Home to one of the first suburban LA communities, it soon became known as a location where artists and writers and other “creatives” lived. During the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s, Silverlake became less of an ideal area to live as more of central Los Angeles diversified and the western hamlets came to be seen as more desirable. In the late 1990’s, artists, musicians and other “hipsters” again moved into the area. The cycle of gentrification began.
