I had an opportunity to join Hiroshi Watanabe at the Gala opening of photo l.a. (Thursday evening). Walking through a gallery (Fair) exhibition like photo l.a. provides an interesting snap-shot of some of the current trends in contemporary photography as well as bench mark for the market of earlier photographer’s work. Note: This is not the time or place for a photographer to try to button hole a gallery owner with a portfolio about one’s “great” photographs, but to take note of who is exhibiting what and to follow up with gallery owners afterward. Which is to say that you should at least introduce yourself!

The overall exhibition & gallery emphasis seemed to lean towards photographers who were or are now exploring conceptual projects. There were a couple of gallery’s who were showing early work by some documentary photographers, but usually limited to a few prints in their collection that were available for sale. As a disclaimer, the aisles were crowded, we were an hour late, so we moved through the exhibition hall at a decent pace. Nevertheless, there was still a lot of interesting and diverse collections of photographs to look at and study.

Cheers!

Posted in Books & Magazines, Photograph Exhibits, Photographers, Photography by douglaspstockdale on January 15, 2016

The LA Art Book Fair will again be at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and will be another delightful maze of rooms with amazing displays of photobook and zines. This event has always been punctuated with some wonderful finds.

From Printed Matter:

Printed Matter presents the fourth annual LA Art Book Fair, from February 12 through 14, 2016, at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Downtown LA. A ticketed preview will take place on Thursday, February 11, 6-9PM.

Free (another aspect of this event that I love) and open to the public, Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair is a (very) unique event for artists’ books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines presented by more than 300 presses, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from over 20 countries.

The LA Art Book Fair is the companion fair to the NY Art Book Fair, held every fall in New York City. Over 35,000 artists, book buyers, collectors, dealers, curators, independent publishers, and other enthusiasts attended the NY Art Book Fair in 2015.

A full list of this year’s exhibitors can be found here.

Highly recommended for those on living (or visiting) the Left Coast.

CALL FOR ENTRY: Storytelling

Posted in Juried opportunities, Photographers, Photography by douglaspstockdale on December 31, 2015

L.A. Photo Curator

CALL FOR ENTRY: Storytelling

Some photographers combine a subject with elements such as location, lighting, composition, and process to tell the viewer a story. The viewer is then invited to use his or her creative imagination to fill in the beginning or end. Many such stories are informed by literature, legends, myths, fairytales, music, dreams, film – the possibilities are endless.

We are looking for photographers with the ability to tell a compelling visual narrative through fine art photography. Stories could be told based on landscapes, and do not have to be portraits. Any kind of photo process (digital, analog, alternative) is welcome, as are photographers of all skill levels and locations. Artist statements are not required.

L.A. Photo Curator is proud to have Carolyn Hampton as this month’s curator for the theme of “Storytelling.” Hampton is a Southern California fine art photographer who creates surreal, dreamlike images based on childhood memories, rituals, nightmares, and fantasies. She is currently working on a narrative portrait series entitled “Constructed Fairytales”. Hampton’s award-winning work has been exhibited in galleries, museums and art festivals worldwide, and is held in many private collections, including those of Jock Sturges, Kim & Gina Weston, and the Center for Fine Art Photography.  Her images have been published in books and on dust jackets, on album covers, and in newspapers, magazines, and popular blogs.

Hampton is represented by the Duncan Miller Gallery (www.duncanmillergallery.com) in Santa Monica, California, where she had a solo show, “Childhood Dreams & Memories” during the summer of 2012 (www.blurb.com/books/4334413-childhood-dreams-memories).

A percentage of artist fees will go Hampton’s charity: Children’s Institute, Inc. (www.childrensinstitute.org)

BC Gallery Exhibition – update

Posted in Photo Galleries, Photograph Exhibits, Photographers, Photography, tPE members by douglaspstockdale on July 3, 2015

Displaying hihbfhfj.

Photographer’s Exchange: L -R, Scott Mathews Water Drop, Larry Vogel Guardians of the Sacred, Michael Weitzman Without Love.

BC Space Gallery is pleased to present its new exhibition: The Photographer’s Exchange: A Quarter Century of Sharing the Light.

The Photographer’s Exchange was founded in 1990 by accomplished fine art photographers Larry Vogel and Larry Weise. They were joined shortly thereafter by avid collector Larry Pribble. The three Larrys as they became known, shared a passion for the art and exacting craft of photography and were seeking a way to share their enthusiasm with kindred spirits.

What began as the occasional gathering of a few fellow enthusiasts gradually evolved into a formal organization with dramatically expanded membership, and regular monthly meetings at which they shared information on traditional and new photographic techniques and processes, worthwhile exhibitions, and critiqued each others work.

Never a camera club, the Photo Exchange has remained focused on bringing its members together to enhance their visual literacy through freely sharing their passion and knowledge of the art of photography. This collection of work in this exhibition represents the culmination of twenty five years of “Sharing The Light” and clearly illustrates that the collective can indeed be greater than the sum of its parts.

There will be an opening reception for The Photographer’s Exchange: A Quarter Century of Sharing the Light on Thursday, July 9, 2015, from 6-9 PM at BC Space Gallery, 235 Forest Ave, Laguna Beach, CA 92651. The public is welcome and the event is free.

The exhibition will be on display through August 30. Normal gallery hours are 1-5 PM Fridays through Sunday.

For further information, check the website at www.bcspace.com or contact the gallery at (949) 497-1880. Additional contacts are: Scott Mathews (714) 345-7595, Bill Edwards (949) 307-5360, and Jim Koch (949) 646-2242.
