Juror, January Parkos Arnall, selected 50 prints for the "3rd Annual Member's Exhibition" at the Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP). Ms. Arnall currently works as Curatorial Assistant at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, California, and serves on the board at the Inglewood Cultural Arts in Inglewood, CA. The Hammer Museum was founded by Dr. Armand Hammer in 1990, and the Museum is now managed by the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA).
For this exhibition, the print selected, "Forgotten No. 5" is from the "Forgotten" Series II, which depicts a World War II U.S. military base in East Greenland whose scattered drums continue to leak fuel more than a half-century later. The second series integrates a stylistic technique that merges historic-appearing black & white photographic style with contemporary bleeding-edge color to metaphorically expand our awareness of the cleanup that remains as well as remind us how the cost of war haunts us so many decades later.
The prints will go on exhibition at the DNJ Gallery, opening July 30th, and remain on display through August 26, 2016. A digital version of the images will also be displayed on the LACP's DNJ Gallery's Web site is at www.dnjgallery.net. More information about the LACP may be found on their Web site at www.lacphoto.org as well as on their facebook page at www.facebook.com/losangelescenterofphotography.
