Diversions, Subtleties and Devotion: Five Photographic Visions: Co-organized by Venice Arts and Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA), this exhibition curates the work of five photographers - Kristin Bedford, Rachel Bujalski, Allison Pharmakis, Josh S. Rose and Lev Rukhin — each bringing a unique perspective to MOPLA’s 2016 theme: Diverse/City.
Diversions, Subtleties and Devotion encompasses a variety of documentary visions into the people and places that make our contemporary cities—as well as more far-flung places connected to them only tangentially—vibrant, interconnected, and diverse places to live. Josh S. Rose and Lev Rukhin surreptitiously capture photographs of the often-overlooked communities and characters of Los Angeles’ neighborhoods. Kristin Bedford and Allison Pharmakis take deep dives into enduring communities of faith in Philadelphia and Los Angeles. Traveling through high desert, national forests, city marinas, and coastal and mountain towns, Rachel Bujalski takes portraits of people living an alternative American Dream—off-the-grid residentially, but plugged in technologically. Together, these artists’ photographic series take us inside worlds both all around us, and utterly new.
