I love galleries, which show courage, because I know how hard and risky that is under commercial terms. And focusing on one artist while making on top also a political statement, needs even more courage. C.A.V.E. gallery from Venice Beach deserves your visit at Photo LA exactly for that. Intriguing presentation, dense, moving and relevant and contemporary.
What else did we like…well the fact that a lot of Dealers actually put prices up with the presented work – we thought, was very consumer friendly.
What did we miss? More galleries, which make a clear statement, theme or artist focused, rather than flooding you with a myriad of images from different artists of different quality. This would also help sharpen the profile of the event itself.

Visiting the 24th edition of an oldie, but often goodie in Los Angeles, the photo la 2015. Especially happy to meet Alan Griffiths again, photo enthusiast , owner of luminous-lint and one of the world’s biggest supporters/ communicators of and about photo history!!!
