I've had local arts organization Create:Fixate on my radar for some time, but this weekend's SnapFlash event got me to the keyboard because it's all photography, all night, and the sheer breadth of other attractions is staggering. Front and center is a rock photo exhibit from Jim Marshall, who spent the last half-century creating some of music's most iconic photos: John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis, the Beatles, and Jimi Hendrix all appear in his work. Color Wars, a "live action art" contest, will pit on-hand photographers against each other in a competition to capture specific image criteria. Music performances will include sets from beatboxer Adam Matta, electro-pop act Kid Infinity, and San Fran trio the Collab Project. Admission is very reasonable for a Saturday night attraction (though its structure is somewhat bizarre: $5 suggested donation before 7pm, $15 from 7pm-10pm, and $20 after.) Thirty photographers have work on display, there's party photography from Polite in Public, and the downtown warehouse location promises to be both hip and somewhat intimidating. This is Create:Fixate's 38th event but only its 6th Annual Photography Show, and if you're anything like me, the photo-journalist slant will provide a perfect jumping-off point to the rest of their endeavors. Visit SnapFlash this Saturday, September 26, from 7pm-2am at 613 Imperial Street, Los Angeles, CA 90021.
