APA Panel Discussion on Understanding Fine Art Photography


The definition and understanding of what makes a photographic image “art” is undoubtedly subjective and sometimes a bit confusing.

On Thursday April 17th, APA Los Angeles presents a panel discussion to help demystify and explain the intention of creating fine art imagery. We will hear the perspectives from gallery owner Rose Shoshana, educator Sune Woods (Cal Arts) as well as artist Brett Van Ort and Curator of Photography, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Karen Sinsheimer

Panel moderator Aline Smithson is a renowned photographer and teacher who is represented by galleries around the world. Aline founded the fine art photography blog LENSCRATCH.

We will explore the blurred lines between fine art and editorial imagery– work that is shot with intention and concepts. We will explore the kind of work that finds its way onto gallery walls and into museum collections.
We are thrilled to be having this event at the prestigious ROSEGALLERY in Bergamot Station Arts Center, Santa Monica.April 17, 2014
6pm- Networking and light meal
7pm- Presentation
