Normally when this many photographers get together, it's on Robertson Boulevard and/or has something to do with the Kardashians. Refreshingly, from January 16-19, that won't be the case. Head Downtown for Photo L.A.'s 23rd Annual International Los Angeles Photographic Art Exposition, where dealers from across the globe exhibit new and vintage works, as well as video and multimedia installations.
More than just a giant photography show that has attracted more than 10,000 visitors over the years, the event also includes speakers, panels, roundtables and book signings that go along with the event, including: a discussion with Douglas Kirkland (he's being honored at this year's event), opening night gala DJ'ed by Aaron Byrd of KCRW and more. Updates and additional information on events will be posted on the event's website.
