About the Author:

Gary Leonard. A name synonymous with Los Angeles. Indeed, the photographer, born in 1951 in Encino, has been a fixture on the photojournalism scene since first picking up a camera at age eight when he attended a Dodger Photo Day. From that auspicious outing, Leonard has continued to fix his discerning eye on hundreds of thousands of subjects to capture the essence of the City of Angels. His signature style is instantly recognizable: be it candid portraits of politicians, punk rockers or people known and unknown; cityscapes where car washes, Cadillacs and conventions thrum on; or the odd signs that both litter and make light of our lives, Leonard preserves them all in his own photographic amber. His books, "Make the Music Go Bang" (1997), a collaboration with music critic Don Snowden, and "Take My Picture Gary Leonard" (1998), both alive with his imprint, have proven an elixir for Angelenos in need of a pop culture fix.

Rarely seen sans camera, Leonard has also exhibited in solo and group shows, and his images are part of the California State Library collection of historic California photography, as well as the Los Angeles Public Library. It was, he has said, a small, elegant book he happened upon (and still keeps in his car), David Gebhard and Robert Winter's A Guide to Architecture in Southern California (LACMA, 1965) that first "inspired people like me to look
around at the architecture in the city."

When ground was broken at Walt Disney Concert Hall in 1992, and then again in 1999, Gary Leonard never missed a beat. Or a photo op. From getting a portrait of Frank O. Gehry, Mayor Riordan, Supervisor Mike Antonovich and the visiting Prince Andrew in late 2000, to capturing the first piece of stainless-steel cladding that hugged the framework like a high-glossed cocoon, the chronicler of Los Angeles was on site. Also shooting construction workers (he loves those guys) amid the concrete and stone work that was taking place on Philharmonic offices in early 2002, the indefatigable photographer was doing what he does best: documenting the moment, capturing images that would become iconic, transcendent, indelible. L.A. history, by Gary Leonard. --Victoria Looseleaf

Review:

"Every time I'm anywhere, Gary Leonard either got there before me or just as I was leaving. Symphony in Steel is another successful creative project for Gary, who over the years has always seemed to capture the heart and soul of Los Angeles." -- Huell Howser "California's Gold"

Book Description Angel City Press September 2003, 2003. Trade Paperback. Condition: New. When Frank Gehry makes a new building--that's history! And when Gary Leonard gets out his cameras, Los Angeles history is in the making! So is it any wonder that Gary Leonard is the only photographer to have documented Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles from the first shovel of dirt that was lifted on groundbreaking day right through to completion? And now, his pictures become the definitive Walt Disney Concert Hall book: SYMPHONY IN STEEL. SYMPHONY IN STEEL is Gary Leonard's photo study of the building that has added a 21st Century style to the skyline of L.A. His film captures the people of Los Angeles as they stare into its stainless steel skin. He shoots the building from the inside out, from its steel girders to its upholstered seats. He's got Los Angeles Philharmonic Director Esa-Pekka Salonen and architect Frank Gehry as they contemplate the future and acoustic engineer Yasuhisa Toyota as he creates the perfect labyrinth of sound. Gary Leonard was the only photographer whose lens was on site every step of the way. Now for all the Angelenos who will want it, for all the tourists who must take it home, all the L.A. historians and architectural devotees who'll demand it: here's the only book featuring color images of the building on the covers and Gary Leonard's signature black-and-white images inside. Featuring the words of the people who will live with this architectural symphony in steel--the people of Los Angeles, from Esa-Pekka Salonen and Frank Gehry to John J. Doe. SYMPHONY IN STEEL--the people's book. With photos by the people's photographer, the inimitable Gary Leonard. SYMPHONY IN STEEL: Walt Disney Concert Hall Goes Up* 120 Photographs bynoted L.A. photojournalist Gary Leonard* impulse priced at $16.95--the AFFORDABLE Disney Hall book!* 128 pages; high-quality coated stock* the perfect gift; the perfect documentation of L.A. architecture.
