Some of his photo collections are Twentysix Gas Stations, 1962, Some Los Angeles Apartments, 1965, Thirtyfour Parking Lots, 1967 and A Few Palm Trees, 1971.
The titles aren't meant to confuse you. In Twentysix Gas Stations, you get 26 perfect photos of gas stations.
This is my own tribute to Mr. Ruscha.
