Image #1 for PHOTO LA FAIR 2019

Monroe Gallery of Photography is very pleased to exhibit at the Photo LA Fair January 31st - February 3rd, 2019, in The Historic Barker Hangar, Santa Monica, CA.

Monroe Gallery will be located near the front entrance of the fair in Booth #A01.

We are especially excited that Tony Vaccaro will be in attendance during the Fair January  in the gallery's booth. On Friday, February 1, Photo LA will screen the HBO documentary "Under Fire: The Untold Story of Private First Class Tony Vaccaro". The film tells the story of how Tony survived the war, fighting the enemy while also documenting his experience at great risk, developing his photos in combat helmets at night and hanging the negatives from tree branches. The screening will be followed by a Q & A with Tony Vaccaro. (Seating is limited, tickets required from the Photo LA Fair). Also in attendance will be Ryan Vizzions, and we will be exhibiting his photographs from the forthcoming book "No Spiritual Surrender: A Dedication to Standing Rock", in addition to selections of his other work.

Rounding out our exhibit will be important civil rights photographs and historic examples of photojournalism.
