photo l.a. 2008 to begin next week at new location

photo l.a.'s 17th Annual International Los Angeles Photographic Art Exposition will take place January 10 to 13, 2008, at Barker Hangar at Santa Monica Airport. The new location has been chosen for its capacity for larger crowds and more art space. Higher foot traffic will be expected during the week during which both the photo l.a. and the Golden Globes will take place, with prospected numbers of over 10,000 people at the photography festival.
