Bloody Gums Collective presents #FilmIsNotDead ~ Space Pomona

BloodyGums_SpacePomona (9 of 14)

Last Saturday, Space Pomona hosted the opening of Film Is Not Dead presented by Bloody Gums Collective. With over 50+ photographers on display from variety of photographic mediums including zines. These styles were brought together to show the contemporary photography movement as seen today by young pixers.

As we have seen in the last 10 years, film photography has been taking the backseat to the digital appetite of this generation. This show brings together a quick snapshot of young photographers gravitating to a medium that is still vibrant & creative. Many genres & styles of photography were on display. Definitely a fun night out with friends, admiring the photos and talking shop.

ESMOA_Touch (1 of 11)

Jim McHugh is a celebrated Los Angeles photographer and has been photographing for close to 40 years, creating a catalog like no other. From celebrities to music icons, commercial photography to architecture, his work surpasses genres and creates its own, with a style that is only Jim McHugh's.

The latest exhibit at ESMOA is Experience 19: Touch, a collection of 8x10 polaroid photographs by Jim featuring artists in their studios. Accompanying those photographs are select works by the artists Jim has photographed. This exhibit is more then a glimpse but a lasting impression of one man's vision and passion. This is exhibition will be on display til January 31st 2016, I highly recommend you check it out.
