Open Show Los Angeles provides a forum for our local community of visual storytellers to share their projects. Each month photographers, filmmakers and multimedia producers of L.A. gather at different venues around town for an evening of live presentations and lively conversations.
OPEN SHOW FORMAT
Four or five curated presenters have 15 minutes each to introduce one project. Both ongoing and completed work is accepted. We welcome diverse topics ranging from documentary to fine art.
A Night In La
As people sleep, LA has another side. One that reveals itself to those that look closely. Some, recovery from the day, some, silent irony that is overlooked during the the mad rush of self sufficiency that is required to call LA home. Finding that beauty in the dark is the focus of my work.
Portraits Of Unacceptable Women
Portraits of Unacceptable Women explores the historically oppressive narrative of strong, independent women depicted as witches, spinsters, and "hysterics" through a combination of embroidery, digital photography, and poetics.
Promenade In The Féraud 2014 Series
These pictures were taken in July 2014 during a long week-end in Provence (France) with several friends and their families at an old vineyard property called Les Féraud.
As Real As Our Bodies
My project As Real as our Bodies focuses on elevating environmental justice through portraits of my communities of color. It consists of double exposures via medium and large format. I expose for a portrait, and then expose a piece of our natural world.
