We have performed in situ photoemission and O 1s X-ray absorption studies of La1-xSrxFeO3 (0≤x≤0.67) epitaxial thin films grown by laser molecular beam epitaxy. We found that hole doping induces spectral weight transfer from below the Fermi level to above it across the gap in a highly non-rigid-band-like manner. We also observed the temperature dependence on the spectra of the x=0.67 sample, which shows a charge disproportionation at 190 K. With decreasing temperature, we observed gradual changes of the spectra with spectral weight transfer primarily within the e g band.
