Quiet and laid-back, yet full of life and personality, the latest work of Garrod Kirkwood, a photographer hailing from the United Kingdom, has managed to capture the essence of the West Coast lifestyle in a short photo series. In town to shoot Samuel L. Jackson, Garrod Kirkwood took some time to explore California, Los Angeles, on his own.

Appropriately dubbed Americana, Garrod Kirkwood's photo series focuses on such classic California motifs as skateboarders, neon motel signs, vintage cars, and sunny beach days. He gives them a twist via muted tones and a subtle color palette in order to really be nostalgic. The results are visually striking while allowing people to appreciate such a unique lifestyle.
