As we enter a season of gratitude, we are thrilled to celebrate the photographers without whom there would be no LACP – our staff and work-study students, who work tirelessly on behalf of our local, national and international photographic community.

Like a carefully assembled time capsule, the works included here reflect key questions that drive photographic practice – in their curiosity about the meeting points between past and future technologies, in their open-ended approach toward storytelling and photography’s capacity to re-shape and re-organize how we see the world. From vast landscapes to intimate geographies, from experimental techniques to views of still life, these works provide a nuanced outlook on contemporary—and ongoing–preoccupations.
