Frank Pictures Gallery at Bergamot Station is currently showing the work of five contemporary photographers. The show closes on July 25 and I regret that I missed the opening reception and that this posting is so late.
Frank Pictures Gallery is excited to present “4×5”, a group show featuring five of Southern California’s rising photographic talents: John Fitzpatrick, Brian Hodges, Adam Santelli, Frank Schaefer and Michael Salvatore Tierney. “The biggest challenge facing photography today is creating work that doesn’t resemble what has been seen before”, says Laurie Frank, owner/director of Frank Pictures Gallery, “I see hundreds of portfolios every year that are indistinguishable from Weston, Weegee, Eggleston, and Shulman, then, suddenly, I was asked to jin the faculty of the Palm Springs Photography Festival and one after another I was struck by an overwhelming cavalcade of singular talent. It literally took my breath away.” Frank asked five of the photographers from the festival to showcase four selected works, all sized at 4’x5′, from their individual series.
Frank Photo Gallery is located at Bergamot Station. 2525 Michigan Avenuue, Santa Monica, CA 90404
Open Tuesday – Saturday 11:30 – 6:30 or by Appointment
