This Los Angeles photography series highlights surreal images of the iconic city and its mountainous landscape. While some may criticize the city for its pollution, artist Anthony Samaniego finds its hazy skyline inspiring. The former economics grad transforms into an artist who looks beyond the superficial.

His portraits appear surreal and are not your average Los Angeles photography editorial. Capturing a rainbow of vibrant hues, the artist's 'Dreamscapes' series is nothing short of striking.

The shoot boasts dreamlike lanscape imagery and captures Los Angeles' light pollution which appears strangely beautiful. The city's bright lights appear behind its naturally formed hills and valleys and almost glow like flames. This series is not only dreamlike but is evocative of the city's spirit and the hopes of stardom it makes or breaks each day.
