The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art is offering an open call invitation to exhibit your work. OCCCA has a fabulous space, and its openings are very well attended. Up to 1,200 people come through in a single night. The exhibit is called By The Running Foot, a reference to the cost per size of the work to enter the show. You can find details on OCCCA’s website (link below). Scroll down to By The Running Foot.

After a year and 75 published photographic book reviews on The PhotoBook, I am now co-publishing a few of my reviews in conjunction with the online photo-eye Magazine out of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
My first co-published review is the self-published stiff cover book by Orange County photographer Deanna Templeton, titled “17 Days” and can be found on photo-eye here, or on The PhotoBook here. The principal difference between the two sites for this particular review is the selection of photographs used to illustrate the review, and of course, photo-eye has a hot link available to their bookstore for you to buy the book. I think that the photo-eye bookstore has some signed copies available as well.
Best regards, Douglas Stockdale
California Museum of Photography is exhibiting “The End of Film, a Brief History of Digital Cameras, 1987-2009″ through January 30, 2010.
The exhibit includes digital cameras beginning with Casio’s 1987 VS-101 .28 mp, which digitized video signals rather than capturing a still image. It holds the esteemed label of being the first digital camera used by fine art photographers.
The first truly still image camera on display is Kodak’s DCS-100 from 1991. It boasted 1.3 mp, weighed 20 pounds, and cost a mere $13,000.00.
Fast forward to 2009. Multi media is calling, and the exhibit ends with the Canon 5D Mark II. This camera is capable of capturing stills with 21 mp and can take 1920×1080 HD video for up to 45 minutes.
I am in awe of the newest versions of digital cameras, but walking through this show only makes me wonder how obsolete they will be in another decade. I hope CMP has a second exhibit of the history of digital cameras in 2019 so we can be wistfully nostalgic once again.

Gina Genis will be exhibiting one of her photo collages at the Women’s Club of Hollywood. The exhibit will be for one night only, Sunday, November 22, with a reception from 5-9 p.m. The following is from a press release for the exhibit:
Genis’ work combines the most exceptional elements of nature and technology. Using a camera and software processing systems, a squirrel jaw bone found in the forest becomes an abstracted pattern of delicate beauty. This beauty, however, barely masks a strong presence of danger. The raw elegance of an animal skull reminds us of the tenuous nature of our existence, but through Genis’ photography, celebrates and memorializes life.
The Women’s Club of Hollywood is located at:
1749 N La Brea Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90046-3009
