About The Exhibit
The G2 Gallery is thrilled to present Cheyne Walls’ first solo exhibit at this gallery. Miles from Los Angeles features panoramic shots of the western United States, from Washington to Colorado to Hawaii, and showcases photographs from Cheyne’s recently published homonymous book. The exhibit celebrates nature and beautifully captures awe-inspiring vistas unique to the West, which boasts some of the most diverse landscapes, all within a relatively short distance from Los Angeles. From the world’s largest trees in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, to the lowest elevation point in the Western Hemisphere in Death Valley National Park, to lava-covered landscapes on Hawaii’s shores, there is no shortage of inspiration for Cheyne. At the end of each adventurous trip, Cheyne feels fortunate returning to Los Angeles, knowing his next amazing destination isn’t far away. By sharing these astonishing photographs, Cheyne hopes to inspire fellow Los Angelenos to explore our great outdoors. For him, the best reward is if his images inspire someone to re-discover nature and visit the locations he captured in his photography.
