LAX NAZ stands for "The Los Angeles International Airport Noise Abatement Zone." This was a neighborhood immediately adjacent to LAX that the airport bought out as a noise buffer for new runways in the early & mid 1970's. The houses stood vacant for a couple of years with the windows boarded up. Initially I simply photographed the details of the neighborhood (these images can be viewed in the LAX NAZ section of the site). I soon became interested evidence of forced entries. These photographs are labeled by site and there are often several images from a single site, both interior and exterior. These images are found in the LAX NAZ Forced Entry section of the site. The "House Removals" are simple before and after images of the final home removals. In some cases these are the same homes represented in the "Forced Entries."
