Coming very soon, the Photo Fest at LBCC will be held April 15 -19, their first photographic festival. Which is not getting very much visibility, so we will do our part!
From their announcement:
The first annual PhotoFest@LBCC will be held in Long Beach, California with 4 days of photography-related events and celebrations on April 15, 16, 17th and 19th. The festival will bring together a wide array of accomplished photographers from Southern California and will showcase the work of renowned photographic artists and photojournalists.
