Photo Independent [ The International Exposition of Contemporary Photography] made its inaugural debut over the weekend at The Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. Running concurrently with Paris Photo LA, Photo Independent is the first and only high visibility art fair showcasing independent4 photographers.
Founded by Chris Davies, the President of Fabrik Media, a Los Angeles-based publishing and marketing agency was concerned by the art fair under-representation of talented photographers. As an out of the box thinker and believer, Davies, created a fair that provides a unique forum of exchange between photographers and art professionals through exhibitions and specialized programs. Notably, The Dialogue offers visitors insights into the current and future landscape of contemporary photography. Distinguished curators and photographers will lead The Dialogue, offering first-hand insight into the practice and profession of image making through lectures, panel and round-table discussions. The exhibition also includes a Guest of Honor, Andy Summers, photographer and member of "The Police"; a Special Exhibitions section; and a series of talks, "The Dialogue," meant to deepen one's knowledge of contemporary photography.
Photo Independent features the work of 70 photographers from around the world. The Selection Committee included Daniel Cornell, Palm Springs Art Museum, Graham Howe, curator, photo-historian, and artist, Sarah Lee, curator and gallerist, and Eve Schillo Curatorial Assistant at the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department at LACMA.
