Landscape-inspired highlights from last weekend's Paris Photo Los Angeles art fair.

Last weekend, the Paris Photo international art fair took its show to Los Angeles for the first time, occupying New York-inspired sets inside Paramount Pictures Studio from April 25 through 28.

Around 13,500 visitors viewed photo collections from 60 international galleries and 12 booksellers, with collections stretching from Filip Dujardin's ethereal and absurdist perspectives of small European cities to Fred Herzog's early color street shots of North America. Below, a sampling of the landscape-inspired works attendees saw at the event:
