A Sense of Community: Exploring place through Documentary Photography
Harvard-Westlake Students AND Humanitas Academy of Art & Technology Students
May 16 – June 20, 2015

Opening Reception: May 16, 6 – 8 pm

Photography students have joined forces to tell an important story about the tale of their two diametrically divergent communities. Students from the private prep school, Harvard-Westlake, are collaborating with students from the Humanitas Academy of Art and Technology (HAAT), a public high school in East LA, to make a 21st century, vibrant documentary portrait of where “we” live – covering a wide range of territory from wealthy suburbs to urban blue-collar and under-privileged neighborhoods.

North Korean Perspectives
JULY 23 – OCT 4, 2015

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), or North Korea, is also known as the Hermit Kingdom because it is one of the most reclusive states in the world. North Korea’s citizens are not allowed to travel abroad, there is no internet connection to the outside world, and the flow of information is almost completely controlled by the government. North Korean Perspectives seeks to present two different points of view of this nation – the government’s official version of North Korea juxtaposed against the work of artists who offer alternative observations of the country.

Blank Pages of an Iranian Photo Album by Newsha Tavakolian
13 May to 7 June 2015

Newsha Tavakolian’s reportage focuses on the feeling of claustrophobia experienced by the younger generation in Iran. Taking as their common thread the theme of a family photo album, her photographs depict young middle-class people caught between the contradictory pressures of an increasingly modern society and an Islamic revolutionary ideology.

Tabitha Soren @ The Kopeikin Gallery

unnamed-1Tabitha Soren: Fantasy Life
April 25th – June 6th

Twelve years in the making, Fantasy Life documents the myths of American life that pervade our society. This series explores the fantasies that define America: Manifest Destiny, the romantic idea of the restless wanderer, the hopeful idea that failure is just a step on the road to greatness, the notion that the pursuit of fame and fortune is also the pursuit of happiness, the belief that to secure one’s identity, one must seek to stand apart from the community. Fantasy Life expands upon these beliefs thought to be truths through a captivating series of portraits and landscapes that engage the audience and shift their perspective of baseball.

unnamedCharlie Rubin: Intervention
April 25th – June 6th, 2015

With the rise of digital cameras and smart phones, beautiful photography has become common and ubiquitous. In order to instill value in his photography, Rubin started to distort his photography through bringing in elements of painting, sculpture and collage. The result is a collection of fantastical images that capture the imagination and project an unsettling sense of beauty.

LORI VRBA @ CATHERINE COUTURIER GALLERY

LORI VRBA: THE MOTH WING DIARIES
JUNE 6 — AUGUST 31, 2015

Vrba’s richly textured, meticulously composed photographs are packed with symbolism drawn from art, folklore, mythology, and biblical references. Vrba’s subjects, that include her own children, are actors performing parts in a series of dreamlike vignettes that tell universal stories of love, loss, and the passage of time, and examine the simultaneous joy and pain of motherhood, love, and being an artist. Her portraits are combined with found objects transforming her subjects into otherworldly beings. Feathers appear in many of Vrba’s photographs as a metaphor for flight, transformation, and coming of age.
