LACP’s Gala & Auction 2022 will feature over 150 outstanding photographs from world-renowned photographers that have been generously donated with all proceeds benefiting LACP. This year’s auction is Advances and Declines, exploring issues and moments of advances and declines, of decay and growth, of forward-facing motion and unpredictable shifts that define and change lives.

The Annual Benefit is critical for the long-term success and growth of the organization, with programming only covering 50% of LACP’s operating costs. The rest comes from individuals, sponsors, grants and donations. Your support will help invest in a vibrant community of photographers in Los Angeles and keep LACP growing and thriving.
 
Coming Back/Leaping Forward

Now in its ninth year as a non-profit, LACP is being reinvigorated as a dynamic hub for the photographic community —a vibrant place to explore, experiment, connect and create.

Storytelling and image-making can change the world, and storytellers need a generative space to articulate their voice and advance their practice. LACP 3.0 forges creative vision, insight, and experimentation into a vibrant photographic community that expresses the cultural and artistic crosscurrents that are the essence of Los Angeles.

We invite you to launch and jump into this exciting future with us, with a refreshed branding, a new website and partnerships with aligned nonprofits in LA. Join us to impact social life and empower individuals to define their creative vision.
 
The Cause

Photo by Melanie Chapman


LACP is at the forefront of photographic arts and expression. We help our communities see the unseen with an unflinching eye that captures the beauty, pulse, and cultural tensions of Los Angeles and the spheres of art, creativity, and social transformation it influences.

Every year, LACP celebrates the photographers that have transformed the field and inspired generations of artists. This year, driven by our values, communities, and the bold spirit of LA, we expanded the awards to honor those who have led institutions, emerging voices and photographers committed to social change.

LACP’s 2022 fundraiser will help support our mission, to enable communities to capture, interpret and re-imagine the individual pursuits, cultural conflicts and creative combustion that shape Los Angeles and influence the world.
