Symphony for the Devil - An Official MOPLA Event 

Mr Musichead Gallery, 7511 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90046

Admission: Free. 

Official MOPLA Kick off Event - 04/03/14, 7-10pm Photographs by Baron Wolman Epigraphs by Charlie Newton Design Construction & Calligraphy by Robert Bucciarelli Once upon a time spin wasn’t both sides of the story. There was dialogue. Ideas whose sum wasn’t preordained. The possible had a chance. Because it had a voice. 

Ten U.S. presidents ago, these citizen voices dared challenge the button down, breath mint, Disneyland status quo. Their ideas, and willingness to own them out loud, propelled us all into a blood-stained, soul-scorching confrontation with the American Dream, the inconvenient realities of race, sex, drugs, and money. It’s now 2013—history’s hard won lessons are routinely denied. Nine- hundred pound gorillas stand invisible on our street corners, in our banks, and on our battlefields. Flying blind, the most powerful nation on earth hurtles toward a seminal collision of utopian goals, puritan theology, and dwindling resources.

A long complacent population looks to our two political parties for the answer. Unfortunately, both have accepted the thirty pieces of silver so often we now comfortably call it “contributions.” Our shepherds refuse to confront the obvious and yet remain our shepherds, ruling on our futures, our sins, our ideas—the possible. Why? Camera-friendly faces make certain we understand. Those friendly faces have voices trained by professionals, then blessed by corporate access and Nielsen TVRs. The faces explain, we shuffle.

America’s answer might be in a different set of voices, ideas that weren’t encased in lacquered lip gloss and resold to fit existing, deflated boxes; citizen voices with rough edges and strong opinions, and God forbid, convictions. In their day they dared to speak, dared to ask—dared to imagine another way. They were threatened, charged, and gaged. Why? Because there was no question, they were the Devil.

Silent Waves, Photography by Doug Busch - In Association with MOPLA

978 Chung King Road, Los Angeles,California,90012

Admission: Free. 

 Sometimes the perspective, from which one is looking at the world, can change. It happened to photographer Douglas I. Busch, currently living in Malibu, California, who photographed for 35 years with large format cameras (14” x 17”to 40” x 60”). His transition went from Super Large™ format to the new digital medium.

However, it is not the technique, which encourages us to dream. It is the amalgamation of color, form and subject, the fluid-misty coloration in Busch’s “Silent Waves”. His series of frail images is breaking the traditions and codices of contemporary stylish photography by moving the whole subject one step closer to a painterly attitude. Not that the artist was looking for that attitude. It came, as it sometimes happens, while he was standing on the beach watching the waves roll in. The images were exposing themselves, in a constantly changing and wispy light. They came by day and night. Images fixed in the memory of the camera. And their beauty! This always-changing beauty, kept in the surface of a paper, entices us to touch them the moment we see them.

Photography is able to break small pieces out of the visible reality and then combine them in a different way. That is probably this medium’s greatest strength. Douglas I. Busch shows us how effortless and simple recording the world around us can be.

Sarah Danays, Golden Bough - A Featured MOPLA Event

2525 Michigan Avenue, Suite B7 Santa Monica, California 90404

Admission: Free. 

Danays is a British sculptor and photographer. Her work aims to transcend time, scale, cultural and religious barriers. She meticulously photographs her sculptural work, which combine marble and alabaster handa-tooled pieces with sacred and secular antiquities to make a powerful merger of contemporary amulet and archived curiosity. In some cases the object exists in its entirety, in others it does not. In so doing she embraces the ideas of Baudrillardʼs Simulacra and Simulation, where physical objects and actual experience are exchanged for representation and voyeurism. With the real thing swapped for secondary visual stimulus or assumed experience, it is no longer of consequence whether the original exists, as our relationship is only with its copy. These ʻcopiesʼ are available as limited edition Type-C prints.

Included in the exhibition are works by Cierra Lopez and Melissa Avilez.

NOMADIC CAMERA a solo exhibition by Lekha Singh - A Featured MOPLA Exhibition

Building Bridges Art Foundation, Bergamot Station Arts Center, 2525 Michigan Ave. F2, Santa Monica, CA 90404

Admission: Free. 

 Nomadic Camera will be on view from April 5 to May 1 (6 pm - 9 pm) at Building Bridges in Bergamot Station with an opening and artist reception on Saturday, April 5 at 6 pm.

Nomadic Camera is an exhibition of two of Singh's photography series: Created Equal and Weeds. The intimate portraiture in Created Equal invites viewers to see themselves in another's image—juxtaposing monks in Bhutan and Cambodia with activist punks in Mexico, young children in India with old women in Afghanistan, these images transcend borders, class, and cultural boundaries. From the pastoral grains swaying gently in the breeze to dandelion stalks towering above the grass below, Weeds reveals the dynamic beauty hidden in plain sight. Weeds is printed on large 4x7 aluminum panels to synthesize the resilience of nature with the contemporary medium of photography.

“As an artform, photography’s magic lies in its unique choreography of documentation and interpretation,” says art critic Shana Nys Dambrot. “This paradox unfolds as the choices the artist makes are overlaid onto the outside world. This is the visual alchemy at the heart of Lekha Singh’s photography practice — at the intersection of art and document, activism and observation, artistry and social practice, the personal and global, poetry and edge. Singh calls her work ‘street photography,’ linking her process to diverse forebears from Eugene Atget to Dorothea Lange and National Geographic photographers — those who tell told stories bearing witness to the beauty and ordinary surrealism that already exists in the landscapes, cities, and peoples of the world.”

Singh’s photos have been acquired by several prominent collections, including the Rubin Museum permanent collection. Her major exhibitions Nomadic Camera, Created Equal, African Journeys and The Other Half: Women in Focus have been displayed in museums throughout the United States, including the National Arts Club in New York City and The Women’s Museum in Dallas. Her photos are featured in National Geographic’s The Other Side of War: Women’s Stories of Survival and Hope, Bhutan, The Making of an Activist and Call to Love: In the Rose Garden with Rumi, and they have been published in The New York Times, Ode and Yoga + Joyful Living. Her fifth book, Pop-Up Pianos, was published in fall of 2012.

Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles

Apr 05 2014


Prohibition Gallery, 6039A W. Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232    

Admission: Free. 

SAGE PROJECTS in association with Ace Hotel Downtown LA are pleased to present fine art photographer and filmmaker, Matthias Koenigswieser, in his first solo exhibition.  “CHIAROSCURO”, a Renaissance-derived term describing an artist’s extreme use of light and dark, appropriately titles this body of work which challenges the viewer to slow down and view life through a different, albeit well-travelled, lens.  Each emotionally charged image evokes narrative and mood, a story unfolding before the viewer’s eyes.

Koenigswieser’s extreme dedication to his craft emanates through his work.  A master storyteller, he captures images on analog film with help of natural light, adding an ethereal, voyeuristic layer to each of his works.  This photographic series captures and communicates those cursory memories that exist only in our minds.  Often fleeting moments of beauty, nostalgic and full of sentiment, place the beholder both in role of observer and that of the one being watched.  Thus audience and image create an emotional synergy essential to the exhibition.

Exhibition runs through April 27, 2014

bG (Bleicher/Gorman) exhibit at Bergamot Station

Apr 12 2014

Photography of The Spectacular - A Featured MOPLA Event

Bergamot Station 2525 Michigan Avenue Gallery 8A, Santa Monica, CA

Admission: Free. 

 For MOPLA, bG Gallery presents the second part of bG’s Art of the Spectacular Series, Photography of the Spectacular, an exhibit of visionary photographers capturing and creating spectacle in their work.

The spectacle is now a major part of mainstream film and video games but has its roots in fine art; particularly romantic and surrealist compositions. Art has influenced scenes of the spectacular in contemporary film and video games and these new medias have, in turn, influenced scenes of spectacle in contemporary visual art works.

The photographers in this exhibit represent the culmination of this cycle, calling upon past influence and internal psychology to create works of awe and inspiration through spectacle.

Exhibiting: Nick Veasey, Jonathon Kambouris, Ryan Schude, Dan Busta, Steve Diet Goedde, Garret Suhrie, Lizzy Waronker, Stephen Confer, and Austin Irving. 

Reception: April 12, 6-10pm

Exhibit duration:  April 9-18th

Hours: 11-7pm Mon-Sunday or by appointment.

Pieces of String - An Official MOPLA Exhibition 

Frank M. Doyle Pavillion, Orange Coast College, 2701 Fairview Rd, Costa Mesa CA 92626

Admission: Free. 

For four years Justin Kimball photographed in abandoned homes, hotels and buildings in the Northeastern United States. For much of this work he accompanied his brother Doug, an auctioneer, into the houses of the deceased or dispersed. While Doug cleared these spaces of items for potential resale, Justin sought within them the evidence of an individual’s life. Photographing “the smallest objects (a note, a box of hair pins, a stain on a pillow),” Kimball re-imagines their existence and relationship to the absent owners. “I use the camera’s descriptive power and the photographic illusion of truth to create the narrative and inspire feelings about its subject. The resulting photographs are my perception of what happened in those spaces: Who lived there? What was hidden and what was seen?” Justin’s 60 color photographs from this body of work are explorations of the minutiae of everyday life—a contemplation of our brief and humble legacies before they are cleaned up and cast to the wind.  Included in this volume is a booklet of Doug Kimball’s evocative writing about his own experiences with the emotional storm that surrounds these objects, their owners and beneficiaries.

Presented by: The School of Photography

Dates: Thursday March 13th- Saturday, April 19th

Off the Clock 2014 APA LA Curated Personal Photography Exhibition - A Featured MOPLA Event 

Helms Bakery Building Washington Corridor 8723 Washington Blvd Culver City 90232

 OFF THE CLOCK is APA LA’s third annual curated exhibit of inspired personal photography. Images will be chosen by one curator who will carefully select the top 100 images from the submissions. Give the curator your best shot!   The curator for 2014 is Britt Salvesen, Curator and Head of Wallis Annenberg Photography Department at LACMA. 



Many of the top creatives in our region will receive special invitations to the reception, so this is a superb opportunity to show them your finest personal work. After the opening reception, the 100 selected images will hang for two months at the legendary advertising agency TBWA\Chiat\Day. After that, the show will travel to Deutsch and Iginited for another two months each. This gives your personal work exposure to creatives (and art buyers) at three of the top advertising agencies in the country.

In addition, we will also display the complete exhibition on our website for a full year and we have been invited to display this exhibition at photo la 2015, so your finest personal work will be exposed to thousands more potential clients. You can enter as many images as you like. To be fair, we’ve limited the number of accepted pieces from any one photographer to their top six as decided by the curator.



Creatives love to see photographers’ personal work because it reveals their true photographic style without anyone else’s influence or input. OFF THE CLOCK is easy to enter. No confusing categories. No series of images. No creation date restrictions. No vastly different size prints or frames. Only strong, original, creative, truly personal work gets accepted. Entries may be black and white, duotone, or color, and should be self-commissioned and must represent what you consider to be your finest personal work. There is no limitation on when your images were created. Alternative print processes are acceptable.

Contact Photo Lab, 618 Moulton Avenue, Suite E Los Angeles, CA 90031

Admission: Free. 

Taking a photograph of a singer on stage is the easy part. The hard part is gaining the trust. This body of work is about R&B and Soul music as seen through the lens of a young African-American photographer at the start of his career. From 1972-1982, Bruce Talamon was documenting the rehearsals and sound checks, the recording sessions and costume fittings, life on the tour bus, and of course, the wild photo sessions and memorable performances. But he was also there when they exhaled. Contact Photo Lab is proud to present the first, fully comprehensive exposition of this body of work featuring staggeringly beautiful black & white and color prints.

FIROOZ ZAHEDI: Photographs & Collages - An Official MOPLA Exhibition 

Kopeikin Gallery, 2766 La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90034

Admission: Free. 

I grew up in Iran in the 1950’s . Technicolor Hollywood movies gave me the chance to escape into a world of beautiful happy people who drove big cars, sang songs and fell in love and then went on to live happily ever after. I wanted to be a part of that world. I was good at drawing and painting. I thought I would grow up to be like Gene Kelly in An American In Paris ; painting , singing , dancing and falling in love.

One day I did land up in Hollywood and managed to establish myself as a portrait photographer without having to sing and dance. There was love and marriage and then a divorce but what kept me going was the passion to create images that made my heart tick .  My heart is still ticking but it is telling me to do all that I am capable of as an artist without playing the same song over and over again. I believe the character of Willy Wonka expressed it best by saying something like “ So much to do and so little time.”
