Spring approaches and so does Month of Photography Los Angeles. Since 2009, Lucie Foundation proudly puts on a month long celebration of photography every April in Los Angeles. This year’s theme is “Adaptations and Reverberations: Contemporary Photography’s Ever Changing Landscape.” We explore the adaptations of photography as it transforms with technology while classic approaches still reverberate in the artform.
We’re very excited about our MOPLA programming this year and highlights include Fresh Look Portfolio Reviews, SnapShop!, Smashbox + MOPLA Group Show, along with several MOPLA curated photo exhibitions and projections from the community. We’re also collaborating with galleries on artist talks and events that will appeal to both professional photographers, students, and emerging talent.
As an effort to bring photography to the youth, SnapShop! is a four Saturday program that connects high school students with established photographers that can teach them the technical and aesthetic skills to create compelling photographic images. We’ve reached out to the Los Angeles youth that may not have access to photography programs or workshops.
Month of Photography LA 2011 will launch its official opening on the night of April 2nd. Stay tuned for updates and make sure to check out the official MOPLA website for more information.
