This past Saturday APA Los Angeles presented its Fifth Annual Off The Clock Curated Personal Photography Exhibition- an official MOPLA exhibition.
I was honored to have one image and 2 diptychs selected for the exhibition.
The opening reception was held at Santa Monica Art Studios.
In the first image, entitled Balance, dancer and gymnast Jeremiah Buren of Sports and Lifestyle Unlimited Agency balances on his elbow. This image was shot at Arts District Los Angeles Photo Collective in downtown Los Angeles. You can see it on the website here.
In the second image, actor and martial artist Raihan Bacqui. is performing a kip-up. (He is wearing The Roadie skinny men's jeans from the Adam Levine Collection). This image was shot outside on a rooftop in West Hollywood, Californa as part of a new series I started last summer entitled In Water. You can see this image and other images from the series here.
I can't wait until the weather gets warmer here so that I can continue this series !!!
I just love the way the light "gets into his skin," highlights it's texture and accentuates the sculptural elements of his muscles.
Here are some other images from the night...
Thank you to selected artist Brandy Trigueros for taking this photo !
Of course my Jitterbugs were there :-) and were even lucky enough to get a picture with Julie Grahame herself. They were very interested in how and why she chose the images that she did for the show, and had some pretty strong opinions about some of the work. She took the time to chat with them about some of the work and about the curation process and they loved it.
She even made JB #1 aCurator for the night !
**All above images in this blog post were shot with Samsung Galaxy S5.
