April showers bring…well, a ton of photographic activity in Los Angeles.
One of the most passionate supporters, collectors, gallery owners, and creator of the LUCiE awards. Mr Hossein Farmani, has created a month long celebration of the photographic arts in Los Angeles, called MOPLA.
Executive producer Cat Jimenez and her team, have once again put together a stellar program of events throughout the city.
With exhibitions, lectures, seminars, and one of the finest photo auctions in town, MOPLA has become a new reason to hang in LA for the month of April.
And sure it’s the 22nd, but there is a ton of events going on still and the crescendo starts tomorrow night with a sneak peak at Fresh Fair, a mini gallery showing, with some previews of the upcoming photo auction.
