Photo Club goes to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art

On February 28th the SWC Photo Club went to visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It started with one of the most interesting displays of old street lights out in front of the museum. Here were all these old lights, lined up in columns that you could wander through. I found some very interesting extreme angle photographs in this display. The exhibit we went to see was “Vanity Fair” featuring some of the great photographers of this magazine. Most memorable was the black & white photography, particularlythat of Edward Steichen who I had heard of but never seen his work. His use of light to illuminate his subject was awe inspiring for me! Much of the fine work by the photographers of Vanity Fair magazine was featured.

Afterward, we went down to a place called “Bergamot”. It is the name for avery unique Museum of Art in Santa Monica. Artists have their own galleries and you can actually talk with some of them! The art shown here was very unique, it included a crochet representation of a coral seascape! It was amazing to see what people could make art out of!

We ended up in Venice. Ah yes THE Venice Beach! We ate on the main drag and enjoyed a superb meal and hunted down some good coffee for the trip home. It was an amazing and successful event! Stay tuned for more on our activities upcoming!
