CMAY Gallery is pleased to present LA PHOTOSCAPE a group exhibition that explores the notion of landscape in Los Angeles and its surrounding area by six LA based artist/photographers who come from diverse backgrounds. This exhibition is the second in a series of shows curated by LA based curator Carl Berg that explores the greater Los Angeles through the eyes of artists based in Los Angeles. The first exhibition in the series, LASCAPE, was featured at PRJCTLA last year. LA, one of the most photographed and filmed cities, has caught the interest of many artists, photographers and filmmakers for over 100 years. Th city is perhaps best known through their interpretation of the city rather than the actual city itself. A widespread metropolis, the greater Los Angeles area consist of numerous neighborhoods and surrounding cities. It does not reveal itself quickly and it can often take years before one really understands it - if ever. Each neighborhood is a unique place onto itself and only after time does one get to know the diversity of this place. LA PHOTOSCAPE explores the work of six LA-based photographers/artists whose unique interpretation of the city reveals new avenues and investigations. Each artist/photographer in this diverse show has discovered their own meaning of what LA is. Carl Berg the curator of this exhibition has sought to find different viewpoints from the artists of what this place is about, at least to them.
