      An exhibit on the Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies, introduced in 1974 to spark creativity and growth in the community through photo-based representation.

      For Southern California photographers, this organization was crucial to the fostering and well-being of a community, inspiring creative dialogue with respect to their art practice. Photography was sought as a medium used by artists to explore new ideas, spark creativity and rekindle communities through an artistic approach. The center is a site for innovative exhibitions that push the boundaries of photographic practice and reclaim a history that has been overlooked.

      Curated by Tim B. Wride, “Sight Specific: LACPS and the Politics of Community” explores the personalities, programs and impact of the Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies. The show includes photo-documentation as well as video oral histories that tell the story of how the organization has contextualized the history of photography in its region. Some of the photographs discuss the contemporary issues surrounding the photographic practice at the time in which it was created; others set the stage for the future of image-making within and beyond regional boundaries.
