The following old photos of various cameras and photographers were posted on the PHOTO L.A. website. (Copyright the various photographers or photographer's estates). If you are in the L.A. area go to Photo L.A. to see what is happening in Photography today.
PHOTO L.A. XX, celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary, is the longest running art fair west of New
York and is the largest photo-based art fair in the country with over 10,000 attendees. It
brings together photography dealers from around the globe, displaying the finest
contemporary photography, video and multi-media installations along with masterworks
from the 19th century. This is the 48th art fair produced by Stephen Cohen, Director of
photo l.a. XX including artLA, photo san francisco, photo MIAMI, photo santa fe,
photo NY and the first vernacular photography fair in NYC.
Enjoy looking at these old pictures of the early days of photography while I finalize the next issue of ARTSnFOOD, to be posted later this week.
