Yes! Hope everyone had an incredible holiday season and a very happy New Year! As the (food?) hangovers begin wear off, let's kick into this one in high gear - let's do the art thing! Just a few days ago, I got word from the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers)Los Angeles chapter that two of my images were among the 32 chosen to be displayed at the 24th Annual International Los Angeles Photographic Art Exposition, otherwise known as Photo LA. Photo LA is an international photography and art exhibition that saw over 15,000 visitors last year and happens to be the longest running art fair west of New York City so you can see why I’m so excited about it. It takes place January 15-18 at The Reef in the historic L.A. Mart building in Downtown Los Angeles, a 500,000 square foot monstrosity filled with art and design and food and beautifully inspiring creativity. There will be lectures, discussions, tours, and enough art installations to keep your mind spinning all day long.
"The 2015 edition of photo la will expand its uniquely diverse and far-reaching showcase of photographic art, ranging from 19th Century works to contemporary and innovative photography-based art. Alongside galleries, dealers, museums, and nonprofit organizations, photo la will also expand its acclaimed programming to include more lectures, roundtable discussions, special installations, and docent tours with distinguished members of the photographic/arts community. This year, photo la is pleased to honor Catherine Opie, and the fair's exclusive VIP opening gala will celebrate her lifelong contributions to the arts. Additionally, all proceeds from the opening gala will go towards photo la's 2015 beneficiary The United Way of Greater Los Angeles and The Painted Brain."
