Penelope Umbrico Bad Display Drawings

We are pleased to announce that Claudia James Bartlett has purchased photo l.a. and that we are heading into a new life for the fair. photo l.a. plans to move to it's new location, Barker Hanger in early February 2019.

Claudia started six years ago with the concept that by combining new ideas in the wider realm of photography with the existing photography/arts community, we could change how people think about photography, art, popular culture and create new interest. None of this would be possible without all of you, our friends of photo l.a. Thank you.

Going forward, we are looking forward to more resources to continue building a better fair. We are excited to continue collaborating with other organizations to bring together arts professionals, collectors, museums, students and the general public. Stay tuned!

photo l.a. has a long and rich history of bringing the photographic and arts community together. For one night and three days the community celebrates photography in its many forms. Each year we expand our uniquely diverse showcase of photographic art, ranging from 19th Century works to contemporary and innovative photography-based art.

Galleries, dealers, museums, schools, and non-profit organizations participate to define what photography has been, what it is today, and what it might evolve into. To foster a dialogue we curate and present our acclaimed programming, which includes, lectures, roundtable discussions, special installations, and docent tours with distinguished members of the photograph / arts community.
