A unique platform that links dealers and collectors with works by the world’s finest photographers and galleries, photo l.a. is the West Coast’s most enduring international photography fair. “For nearly three decades, photo l.a. has united far-reaching relationships within the photography community to offer a dynamic, insider’s view,” says director and owner Claudia Bartlett. That breadth of influence, along with the standout talent photo l.a. has amassed, will be on full display throughout Santa Monica’s Barker Hanger. “I’m excited to see Danziger Gallery present Paul Fusco’s The RFK Funeral Train,” Bartlett shares. “These photographs celebrate the idealism and diversity of America, an inspiring reminder that we need at this moment in time.” Additionally, gallery ADVOCARTSY will present works by Iranian contemporary photographers on the themes of identity and migration, while Paris’ galerie SIT DOWN exhibits the works of Florian Ruiz, a French artist and winner of the 2018 Sony Prize, who questions the relationship between photography and environmental issues in a beautiful, haunting way.
