DESCRIPTION

For Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA), bG Gallery Bergamot presents the second part of the Art of the Spectacular Series, Photography of the Spectacular, an exhibit of visionary photographers capturing and creating spectacle in their work.

The spectacle is now a major part of mainstream film and video games but has its roots in fine art, particularly romantic and surrealist compositions. Art has influenced scenes of the spectacular in contemporary film and video games and these new medias have, in turn, influenced scenes of spectacle in contemporary visual art works.

The photographers in this exhibit represent the culmination of this cycle, calling upon past influence and internal psychology to create works of awe and inspiration through spectacle.

Exhibiting: Moby, Evan Lane, Nick Veasey, Jonathon Kambouris, Dan Busta, Ryan Schude, Lauren Randolf, Steve Diet Goedde, Garret Suhrie, Lizzy Waronker, Stephen Confer, Austin Irving, and more to be announced.
