Redefining Hollywood Exhibit at The Factory Gallery

Postcard.Final

RedefiningHollywood,square


I am proud to be a part of the Redefining Hollywood exhibition at the Factory Gallery in downtown Los Angeles.

Produced by Fabrik Magazine and curated by Aline Smithson, J. Wesley Brown and myself, this is an exhibition that looks at Hollywood with an analytical and an amused eye. The idea of Hollywood has intrigued and inspired image-makers for the last century and it’s no different today. Photographers find themselves continually fascinated by not only the notion of Hollywood, but by the city and community of Hollywood. For some, it’s the feeling of noir and night, for others, it’s the reality of the streets and neighborhoods. Photographers are influenced by movie stars and the idea of celebrity, and by the movies themselves. There is a rich tapestry of photographic ideas and inspiration that emerge from the tangible and intangible idea of Hollywood, and with each unique photographic vision, these photographers are Redefining Hollywood.

I have three prints in the exhibit:

Griffith to Hollywood
Once Ince
Hollywood as a Mystery

I can't tell you how thrilled I was when Astor Morgan, curator of I Spy with my Plastic Eye, chose my Six Flags Diana image for the cover of the accompanying book.

I had another Holga image (shot with a Holgaroid camera and Polaroid film) in the show as well "No Photoshop Used on Image."

I had a wonderful engagement session with Steve and Lovy at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes last month.  They received this session because Steve purchased Lovy's ring at a Ben Bridge Jeweler store.

Lovy made this adorable Save the Date wooden banner so we included it in our photo shoot.

Happy Birthday

The next birthday card I am going to be selling (and of course using myself).

Found the Shakespeare quote today I am going to use with it.

To me, fair friend you never can be old,
For as you were when first your eye I ey'd
Such seems your beauty still.
