The 17th annual photo l.a.
Exposition will take place January 10 to 13, 2008. This immensely popular event will be moving to a new venue this year: The 35,000 square foot Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport
will house more than 10,000 people, a necessary consideration for the event, which has been growing in popularity (and size!) steadily since it was first started by local gallery curator Stephen Cohen. The new space will also offer a better lighting system, and more space for photo and video presentations. The event will be open to the public starting January 11 and continuing every day of the event.
Special guests will include the new LACMA Department Head and Curator of Photography, Charlotte Cotton, and the recipient of photo l.a.'s first lifetime achievement award, architectural photographer Julius Shulman. Center,
hosts of the annual Review Santa Fe photography festival, are co-sponsoring the lifetime achievement award. They will be hosting a concurrent event, Review Los Angeles,
which emulates the successful model of the Santa Fe event: participating photographers, chosen by jury, will have an opportunity to hold twenty minute one-on-one meetings with industry experts.
Admission fees for photo l.a. are $15.00 for a one-day pass and $25 for a three-day pass. To find out more, click here.
