Celebrating Aline Smithson’s contribution to the photographic world

Driven by our mission to remove barriers for entry, LACP is thrilled to announce a new award, designed to empower and promote emerging, female identified photographic artists based in Los Angeles.

The Aline Smithson Next Generation Award will invite a selected artist to create a solo exhibition at LACP (December 2024), and receive access to membership and professional development support.

Aline Smithson is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, and editor. She has exhibited over 40 solo shows and her books are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Getty Museum, the Los Angeles Contemporary Art Museum, and the Guggenheim, among others. In 2012, Smithson received the Rising Star Award through the Griffin Museum of Photography for her contributions to the photographic community. Smithson was honored as a 2022 Hasselblad Heroine. With the exception of her cell phone, she only shoots film.
