Photography Exhibition: The Getty Museum - In Focus: Los Angeles,1945–1980

Garry Winogrand, American, 1964, Los Angeles International AirportThe Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California, regularly has extraordinary photographic exhibitions. In Focus: Los Angeles, 1945–1980 is no exception.

This exhibition will run through May 6, 2012

This exhibition features photographs—made between 1945 and 1980—from the Museum's collection that represent diverse responses to the city of Los Angeles as a subject and to photography as a medium for documentary and creative expression. It is loosely grouped around the themes of experimental photography, vernacular architecture, car culture, and fantasy and the film industry.
Both iconic and relatively unknown works are included. One of the best known is Garry Winogrand's image of two women walking towards the Theme Building at L.A. International Airport. Though a quintessential New Yorker, Winogrand settled in Los Angeles near the end of his life.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area through early May, 2012, I strongly suggest you take in this terrific exhibition.

As I travel, I love seeing the work of other photographers as I hope you do. If you know of a new photographic exhibition which you think the Blog should publicize, please contact me.
