deasy penner podley Partner Michael Locke Documents LA’s Architectural Gems

DPP’s very own Michael Locke has a passion for not only selling architecturally significant homes, but also photographing them. Michael has been shooting with his digital Nikon camera for about 15 years now; documenting homes from all over the greater Los Angeles area. He is driven by the desire to preserve a record of the work of notable Los Angeles architects. One such architect is Paul R. Williams, who became the first African-American member of the American Institute of Architects in the early 1920s. Michael’s interest in Williams was piqued when he listed a home designed by the renowned architect. Michael began photographing Williams’ homes in an effort to preserve his legacy. Other architects whose homes have been captured through Michael’s lens include many who worked under developer Joseph Eichler, such as A. Quincy Jones Jr. and Frederick Emmons.

To learn more about Michael’s photography project read the full article by Dave Weinstein on Eichler Network.
