She was also the creative director and a producer of “Beyond 7 Billion,” a Los Angeles Times series honored with a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award in 2013 for New Media. In 2011 she was a part of the team that was honored with a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for its coverage of the aftermath of Haiti’s earthquake.  In 2012, Pictures of the Year International named Baylen the Multimedia Photographer of the Year. She has also been recognized for her efforts by other prestigious organizations, such as World Press Photo, the National Press Photographer’s Association and White House News Photographers Association for her still and video work.

IMG_0570We are thrilled to announce another special “Movie Night” on Friday, August 22.  We will screen the BBC documentary The Vivian Maier Mystery. Executive producer Jeffrey Kurz will be present at the screening to discuss and answer questions about the film.

This fascinating documentary uncovers the life of Vivian Maier, a nanny working in New York and Chicago who, unbeknownst to many, had a secret passion for photography. When she died in 2009 at the age of 83, she left behind thousands of photographs and undeveloped rolls of film that were discovered by several collectors at a Chicago auction house. Maier’s incredible body of work now lives on and establishes her as one of the century’s master street photographers. The Vivian Maier Mystery uncovers the story behind the woman behind the camera. A FilmBuff presentation of a BBC Production

Movie Night – “Martin Elkort: An American Mirror” – Aug 15

Friday, August 15, 7:30 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)

Martin-Elkort_BLOGIn our continued quest to offer wonderful events at the Los Angeles Center of Photography, we are thrilled to announce another special “Movie Night” on Friday, August 15.  We will screen the 55-minute documentary Martin Elkort: An American Mirror. Both Martin Elkort and filmmaker Stefani Twyford will be present at the screening to discuss and answer questions about the film.

In the 1940′s and 1950′s, Martin Elkort roamed the urban landscape of New York City with his camera in search of the perfect picture. His indelible images of simpler times remind us that the human experience can be a joyous one. Poignant and insightful, his photographs reflect the Great American Melting Pot in all its unpolished glory.

Exploring the life and work of noted New York street photographer Martin Elkort, An American Mirror is a heartfelt tribute and educational documentary created by his daughter, award-winning producer Stefani Twyford of Legacy Multimedia. More than just a study of Martin’s work, An American Mirror is an intimate visit with a truly interesting character who shares stories about the history of American photography along with major events that changed the nation.

An American Mirror chronicles Elkort’s winding journey from his boyhood in New York during the Great Depression to a young man coming of age in the new world of documentary photography. Educated at the Cooper Union, Elkort was also a member of the renowned New York Photo League where he studied under, and shared darkrooms with Aaron Siskind, Lou Stoumen and Sid Grossman, among others. It documents his story of moving away from street photography in order to support his growing family, and of his journey back when he retired and found a growing interest not only in the Photo League, but in his own work as well. The documentary follows his evolution as an artist with an emotionally honest photographic eye and as a respected writer.

Narrated by award-winning voice talent Kurt Kelly, the 55-minute film features many of Elkort’s vintage and newer photographs along with insights from highly respect museum curators Anne Wilkes Tucker and Catherine Evans as well as gallery owner Catherine Couturier, that provide fascinating historical context and artistic commentary.

For more information about Martin and his photography please visit www.martinelkort.com.

Doors open at 6:30 pm for social hour. The film screening begins at 7:30 pm, followed by a Q & A with Martin Elkort and Stefani Twyford.

Don Bartletti is a photojournalist based in San Diego County.   He’s been on the staff of the Los Angeles Times for the past 31 years.  Assignments have taken him to wars and social documentary investigations in 23 countries.   However the soul of his career has been his professional and personal commitment to the causes and consequences of migration between Latin America and the United States.

Bartletti was awarded the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography for his 6-part photo essay titled, Enrique’s Journey – The Boy Left Behind.  Published in the Los Angeles Times, the images chronicle the experiences of Central American children riding freight trains through Mexico and their desperate attempts to flee poverty and find their parents in the United States.

His photographs about immigration have been published in dozens of books, scholarly papers and exhibited in museums throughout the United States and Mexico.  He’s been a guest lecturer and teacher at universities, high schools, civic organizations and photojournalism workshops in the U.S., Mexico and Central America.

An Evening and Book Signing with Marissa Roth – July 14

Monday, July 14th, 7:30 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)

 

About Marissa Roth

Marissa-Roth_BLOGMarissa Roth (www.marissarothphotography.com) has worked as a freelance photojournalist and documentary photographer since 1981. Born and raised in Los Angeles and a graduate of UCLA, Roth was part of the Los Angeles Times photography staff that won a Pulitzer Prize for “Best Spot News Coverage” for the 1992 Los Angeles Riots. Her first solo book, Burning Heart, A Portrait of the Philippines, was published in 1999 and represents ten years of photography in the archipelago. In 2000, she completed a documentary photography project commissioned by the Los Angeles Public Library entitled “Inside/Out: Downtown Los Angeles”. Her second book, Real City, Downtown Los Angeles Inside/Out, was published in August, 2001, incorporating many of the images from the Library project. In June, 2005, Roth was commissioned by The Museum of Tolerance/Simon Wiesenthal Center to photograph all of the Holocaust survivors who volunteer there. These images are on permanent exhibition at the museum. Currently, Marissa is working on a long-term personal project entitled “One Person Crying: Women and War” that addresses the immediate and lingering impact of war on women in different countries and cultures around the world.

About her book “Infinite Light: A Photographic Meditation on Tibet”

“This book is my love letter to Tibet,” states Marissa Roth. “It is the reflection of my inner and outer journeys to this land and a very personal impressionistic view of what it feels like to be in Tibet. It is also a social and political statement and another cry for awareness about what is being irrevocably lost. I chose to photograph this project with the last of the Kodachrome film. I knew that the deep reds of the monasteries and monks’ and nuns’ robes would sing with this medium, but that the subtle colors of the stones and landscape would be tonally quiet. And, this film rendered the truest photographic black. It is this contradiction and duality that I continually search for and respond to visually, as I believe that they are the seen metaphors for all that exists.”

This is a free event for LACP Members. Non-member entry fee is $10, payable in-advance or at-the-door. (You can also sign up for Membership at the door.)

“Transforming into a nonprofit will allow us to fully realize our vision as a true center of photography and will enable LACP to create even more opportunities to benefit aspiring, emerging and professional photographers in Los Angeles,” stated Julia Dean, executive director of LACP.

The evening also marks the organization’s First Annual Members’ Exhibtion. The 49-piece exhibition represents the work of 49 different photographers, all members of LACP. Paul Kopeikin of the Kopeikin Gallery curated the exhibit, selecting the chosen work from over 800 images submitted by 147 LACP members.

“I was glad to jury the first LACP members’ exhibition which gives me an opportunity to support all that Julia has done for the photography community in my hometown,” stated Paul Kopeikin. “I was surprised by the amount as well as the variety of imagery submitted and feel this well represents the LACP community. My hope is that it will encourage others to join the organization and get their work ready for next year’s exhibition.”
