EJ CAMP: SEA
January 11, 2014 – March 1, 2014
While renowned for her rich photographic career including celebrity portraits, magazine covers, movie posters and advertising campaigns, additionally EJ Camp has created extraordinary fine art landscape images. Leica Gallery Los Angeles is pleased to present Camp’s exquisite large-scale color photographs entitled “Sea.” EJ Camp will give an artist talk at 4 pm on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at Leica Gallery Los Angeles, 8783 Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood, followed by an opening reception from 6 pm to 8 pm. Both events are open to the public. The exhibition continues through March 1, 2014, with gallery hours Monday through Saturdays, 10 am – 6 pm and Sundays from 12 pm to 5 pm. Complimentary valet parking is available.
“Shooting the sea is not dissimilar from shooting a portrait. It may take some time, in an unforgivable environment and your subject may be cruel and uncooperative. But with patience and coaxing, its guard will be dropped and the soul of the subject will be revealed.” – EJ Camp

The Sochi Project: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus
Exhibition period: 31 1 2013 – 22 3 2014
The photographer Rob Hornstra and writer Arnold van Bruggen began in 2009 her documentary photo project about the region around Sochi in Russia, the Winter Olympic Games 2014. “Never before Olympic Games were held in a region, which are in greater contrast to the games than in Sochi . the conflict zone Abkhazia is situated in a mere twenty miles away. In the East, the Caucasus Mountains extend into the impoverished breakaway republics such as North Ossetia and Chechnya. Along the coast the old sanatoriums from Soviet times, stand side by side with the hotels and clubs most expensive the Russian Riviera. By 2014, the region will have changed beyond recognition to Sochi “said Arnold van Bruggen.
Hornstras photographic approach and Van Bruggens engaging stories about people, land and the eventful history of both combine to form a “slow journalism”, which seeks to have a basic understanding of this small but incredibly complicated region. Images and texts together to create complex and multifaceted background of this troubled region and cast a harsh light on Vladimir Putin’s desire that the “Olympic family in Sochi will feel at home.”

A CHALLENGE TO TIME
6th December 2013 – 12th January 2014
With the Lithuanian Presidency of the European Union Council drawing to an end, this exhibition pulls together 19 key works from the series ‘A Challenge To Time’ by Lithuanian National Artist, Domicele Tarabildiene (1912-1985).
Tarabildiene was a well known inter-war artist whose spectrum of creative means and expression was wide – engraving, book illustration and applied graphics, painting, and sculpture. Her poetic and surreal photography, however, has only recently attracted public attention in Europe. The photographs in the exhibition all date from the early 30s, and most using the photomontage technique. In this respect, Tarabildiene was truly experimental and avant-garde and this exhibition is part of a series premiering her work to a Scottish and indeed UK audience.
‘A selection of Domicele Tarabildiene’s images, where she used herself as subject – and object. Working on negatives and positives, some of them damaged in storage, the artist indulged herself turning posed pictures of herself into fantasies, which could grip the imagination of the viewer. Not for her declaration so often demanded by galleries mounting shows, that images were “unretouched”, she made a virtue of retouching, altering, adding, scraping, scratching, and doing so many of the things that were forbidden in professional artistic photographic circles.’
