August 3 - August 17

The Connected World: 2020

In response to the extraordinary changes occurring in 2020 the Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP) is partnering with the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) in San Diego to acknowledge the importance of photography and art in capturing historic world events. To that point, LACP and MOPA will co-host a free-to-enter online Salon of Photography, entitled “The Connected World: 2020,” capturing the moments of time in the U.S. and around the world in 2020. The exhibition will both portray the significant changes that COVID-19 has wrought on the worldwide fabric of society, and address the changing consciousness around systemic racism and police brutality worldwide.

Chosen by a jury of highly acclaimed photographers, select images will be featured in a digital gallery both at LACP’s Virtual Fundraising Gala on October 24, 2020 and on LACP’s website. LACP will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the photography auction sales to benefit members of the photographic community adversely affected by the COVID-19 crisis as well as to organizations supporting the end of systemic racism.

Photographs submitted can be documentary, street photos, portraits or conceptual images that address the physical and psychological changes the worldwide community has experienced these past few months.

Julia Dean, Executive Director of LACP, Educator and Photographer
Mitch Dobrowner, Fine Art Photographer

A compliment. A constructive critique. Encouragement. Insight. These are the gifts of a mentor; a teacher extraordinaire who is generous with their time and knowledge, and is considerate of who you are and what you’re trying to say or accomplish. The photo history presentation Magnificent Mentors will showcase a handful of the more extraordinary photographers in the U.S. who fostered the careers of some of the most recognized photographers today, historic to contemporary. In the course of this beautifully illustrated lecture, certified photography appraiser & photo historian Jennifer Stoots will examine the philosophy and practice of several photo luminaries and the programs they orchestrated, as well as explore the paths of student success.

John Willis – Combining Social Documentary Photography and Community Engagement

Artist Talk

August 16

67 Shore Rd Winchester, MA

Historically there are many easily arguable reasons photographers should choose to make work of their own lives rather than tell stories of others. During divisive times, I struggle to find means of acknowledging my place and respecting others. At the same time, I want to learn while broadening my horizons and collaborating with others to build bridges between communities, while still respecting ethical processes and storytelling. This talk will attempt to share my thinking while showing some of the project work I have produced, predominantly from the publication Mni Wiconi, Honoring the Water Protectors and the Ongoing Struggle for Indigenous Sovereignty. Willis’ work, “Requiem for the Innocent” and a sampling of the Water Protectors Book will be exhibited at Gallery Kayafas, opening in September.

Katalina Simon | Land Beyond the Forest

Artist Talk

August 20

67 Shore Rd Winchester, MA

Katalina Simon is a British/Hungarian photographer whose work centers on the passage of time and cultural memory. Her interest in photography began when, as a child, she was told that taking pictures was not allowed in many public spaces in communist Hungary and she observed how precious photographs were to her family separated by the Iron Curtain.

We are thrilled to present an online conversation with Katalina about her exhibition, Land Beyond the Forest,  hanging at our Griffin @ WinCam satellite gallery.

Join us online in the Griffin Zoom Room on  August 20th, 2020 at 7pm Eastern Time for a overview of her work, her creativity and what is next for her photographically.

Simon’s photography emphasizes her strong connection with history and the mood of the environments she photographs. Her image making is only part of a larger goal of experiencing a place, learning about a new culture or community.

Katalina holds a BA in Russian from the University of Bristol in England and is a graduate of the Professional Photography Program at the New York Institute of Photography. She is an exhibited member of the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA, PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont and Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.

About Land Beyond the Forest – 

The Land Beyond the Forest is an ongoing series depicting a fading way of life in rural Transylvania. This mountainous and remote region of Eastern Europe is steeped in history and lore. The rugged Carpathian Mountains kept invaders at bay and kept the remote villages isolated from the passage of time.

© Katalina Simon, “Time with Bunica

I am drawn time and again to this region and these people because it reminds me of a way of life that I experienced at my grandparent’s village in Hungary every summer. As a child, I was oblivious to the hardships that people faced and experienced only kindness and warmth. With my camera I work to recapture this feeling of storybook wonder and show domestic tableaux and rural people as I remember them.

For this exhibition I am focusing on the last generation of women who live this traditional rural life. My hope is to show the magic and poetry of the women who inhabit the “The Land Beyond the Forest.”

Workshop: Portfolio Review Preparation

Seminar

August 23 - November 22

75 Bennett Street Northwest, Atlanta, Georgia,

Portfolio reviews are a fantastic way to introduce your work to art professionals who can offer opportunities, guidance and amazing insights into your work. But let’s face it – they take a lot of time and money to participate. APG’s popular Portfolio Review Preparation workshop is designed for artists who are new to reviews who want to get the most out of the event. We’ve timed the class to prepare you for PhotoNOLA. A review event in New Orleans in Dec 2020, an excellent choice for the first-time reviewee. However, you can also use the class to prepare for other portfolio reviews such as Fotofest, Review Santa Fe and Filter Photo Festival or to fast track the launch of a new body of work.

Just the process of preparing for reviews can accelerate your development as an artist and helps focus you on completing work, as well as gaining insight on what your work is about. The discipline of talking about your work again and again with people who really understand art-making, will assist you in having the best discussions ever about your work. And that’s just part of the experience. A review event can be the starting place for some of the best relationships you’ll find in your art career. Meet and share work with other artists, network, connect, and learn so much about where you and your work fit into the national stage.

Artist Talk

August 27

This is our second in a series of conversations we have with the talented artists from our Members Exhibition on the walls until the end of August. We are thrilled to present three artists from our opens in a new window26th Annual Members Exhibition curated by Alexa Dilworth.

Join us online on August 27th at 7pm Eastern for a great conversation between three talented artists, Margaret McCarthy, Nancy Nichols and Dale Niles. Each artist will be talking about their creative path, and discuss the image that Alexa selected for inclusion in our summer exhibition. Each of these artists received an Honorable Mention for their creativity.

Margaret McCarthy – Showcasing images from her series Activism in America, Margaret will discuss her decades long work in capturing the spirit of peace and social justice movements in America.

Nancy Nichols – Will focus on her Pretty Sick Photo Project, a quiet and lovely portrait of her battle with cancer, and how it affected those around her, deconstructing the experience of illness.

Dale Niles – Her image featured in the exhibition, Aunt Willies Nursing Cap, is part of a larger series, What we Keep. Her beautiful, poignant series leads us to think of what is left behind when we lose a loved one, and the objects that keep us tied to their memory as it becomes part of ours.
