A Sneak Peek at Photo LA

  • Share

If a picture is worth a thousand words, prepare to experience the innumerable. From January 22 through January 24, dealers from around the world descend upon Los Angeles for the annual Photo L.A. show at the REEF. The international photographic art exposition features both new and vintage works in addition to video and multimedia installations. Every day, expect a schedule packed with talks fit for both collectors and artists alike–whether it’s a panel discussion on the LA photographic scene in the 1970s or a talk with LA-based photographer Brian Bowen Smith. Tickets are available in advance. For now, here are some highlights.
