Stephen Gee: Author and filmmaker

In this interview with the author and filmmaker, Stephen Gee, we hear about the British architect behind some of LA's most recognizable buildings.
Stephen is the author of Iconic Vision: John Parkinson, Architect of Los Angeles (Angel City Press); co-author, with Arnold Schwartzman, of Los Angeles Central Library: A History of its Art and Architecture (Angel City Press), and Los Angeles City Hall: An American Icon (Angel City Press).
Stephen's film, Iconic Vision: John Parkinson, Architect of Los Angeles includes a wealth of never before seen archive footage and interviews with leading California historians. There's also a wonderful appearance by Hollywood legend, Angela Lansbury. Watch the Lansbury extras here.
Stephen also explains how a three-month assignment to LA turned into an adventure spanning a quarter of a century.
