Our Favorite Images from Photo L.A. 2016


Photo L.A. celebrated their 25th anniversary with their yearly International Los Angeles Photographic Art Exposition. Photo L.A.'s ever changing themes always leave their viewers with something new and unique to look at.

So many galleries, dealers, museums, schools, and nonprofits participated in this one of a kind Los Angeles Art show that it was overwhelming, but in the best possible way. We all use our phones constantly and love Instagram and other apps, but have you noticed it can become such a mundane, flat experience to only view photographs on a small screen? An event like Photo L.A. represents a rare chance to encounter an array of diverse photographs that you'll never see together again. The distinguished collection featured images from photographers such as Dani Oliver, Jim McHugh, Jay Mark Johnson, Laura London, Mei Xian Qiu, Ed Templeton, Jeffrey Sklan, Pep Williams, various students of the Venice Institute of Contemporary Art, Bob Gomel and Bill Eppridge. There were so many photos to see you caught yourself scanning wall after to wall to ensure you didn't miss anything. If you weren't able to stop by yourself you can view the gallery for a photo recap and be sure to look out for next year's Photo L.A.!
