Last fall, Emerging Photographer relaunched as a submission-based magazine for up-and-coming artists. Eleven photographers were selected to be featured in our Winter 2014 issue—some who are still in school and others who have already begun to make a lasting impact as professional photographers. We are confident that each of their visions will have longevity within this industry. This gallery showcases a few images from each of the eleven photographers’ featured series.

2015 marks the third iteration of the Lucie Foundation's Instagram Jam, originally conceived by Shaughn Crawford. This year will feature 20+ Instagram sensations including Tasya van Ree ARTISTDowntown Muse,South Bay Muse and many more. A portion of the print sales will benefit SNAPSHOP!, Lucie Foundation’s at-risk youth workshop program. 

Pro'jekt LA 2 features the works of artists included in both  Emerging Photographer and the 2015 Instagram Jam

From Darkroom to Daylight: Film by Harvey Wang - official mopla event

Venice Arts, 1702 Lincoln Boulevard, Venice, CA 90291

Venice Arts and Month of Photography Los Angeles present the Los Angeles premiere of “From Darkroom to Daylight”, a film by Harvey Wang that explores how the dramatic change from film to digital has affected photographers and their work.  Wang interviewed more than 20 important photographers and prominent figures in the field including Sally Mann, Eugene Richards, George Tice, as well as innovators Steven Sasson (who built the first digital camera while at Kodak) and Thomas Knoll (who, along with his brother, created Photoshop).

Screening will be preceded by a reception from 7:00 to 7:30 and followed by a Q&A with Director Harvey Wang.
