Los Angeles is a city that celebrates the arts like no other city in the world. From the murals on buildings and underpasses, painted staircases, and sidewalk art… to the numerous art galleries and arts districts it is our heritage as Angelenos.

Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA) is one of the ways we recognize and celebrate the art form brought to our city by photographers. Many venues roll out the red carpets and break open the wine to acknowledge the artistic contribution photographers make to our society.

The Santa Monica Art Studios is one of the forefront venues celebrating photography during MOPLA. This year they hosted four premier photography exhibits.

Though these exhibits are wrapping up, we want to show you what it was like if you missed it. In the video above we travel through Construction: A Group Show About Memory and Fabrication featuring bodies of work by Jacek Kolodziejski, Philip Cheung, Leticia Zica, Diane Meyer, Bruna Stude, and J. Fredric May – PDN’s Emerging Photographer: Spring 2018 – the International Photography Awards Best of Show, and APA Los Angeles’ annual Off the Clock exhibition (shown in previous post)!

Month of Photography Los Angeles was created by the Lucie Foundation circa 2009. During the inaugural month, the foundation used Los Angeles – where the second largest photography community in the United States is located – to showcase its enormous photography community, inclusive of commercial, fine art and photojournalism.
