Photo L.A. coming up in Santa Monica


The sixteenth annual Los Angeles Photographic Print Exposition will take place at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium from January 18-21, 2007.

If you are into photography, another exhibition is still running at the Getty Center until February 25th: "Where We Live: Photographs of America from the Berman Collection"

The Photo L.A. exposition is organized by Artfairs, inc. which was created to "help expand the arts community in Los Angeles, and in particular to propel the thriving regional art scene onto the international radar."

Looks like it is a success:
"Over the course of fifteen years, photo l.a. has become one of the most popular photography fairs in the country, bringing together over seventy galleries and private dealers from around the globe. Highlighting the finest works of the medium, from classic 19th Century photography, to contemporary images including digital and photo-based artwork. Last year, photo l.a. had a record attendance of over 7500 visitors, and its numbers and popularity only continue to grow.

In time, three other national fairs grew out of photo L.A.: photo Santa Fe was the first, enjoying a seven-year run until Stephen decided to shift his focus back to California and open photo San Francisco in 2000 . Then in 2004, photo New York was born. And in 2005 he created the wildly successful contemporary art fair, artLA, which in its debut year attracted over 5000 visitors to the Santa Monica Civic Center. "

The 1 day pass costs $20 which is well worth it for over 50 exhibitors. The exposition website has the full list along with links to photo galleries.
