A milestone for the Annenberg Space for Photography, and you reap the benefits

One of the photographic jewels in Los Angeles is the Annenberg Space for Photography.
Funded by the Annenberg Foundation, and led by Wallis Annenberg, this unique edifice is dedicated to the art and power of photography, and remains a free place to visit for all.

We have been fans since before they broke ground, and want to do everything to celebrate and spread the word about their offerings.
Not only are there provocative, enlightening, entertaining, and thought provoking exhibits, both on the walls and on their massive 4k HD screens, but there are lectures in support of those exhibits.

Sure, if you are in LA as a resident or just passing through, you have the opportunity to attend one of these lectures, called Iris Nights, for free, live, and just $1.00 for parking.

OK, forget about the money part, you get the opportunity to hear from the artists themselves or perhaps in conversation with a journalist or associate.
From Neil Leifer to Nikki Sixx, Steve McCurry to Susan Anderson, Leonard Nimoy, Lauren Greenfield, Larry Towell, Jill Greenberg, Walter Iooss, Douglas Kirkland and a ton more.

A Ton more? How about this: Thursday they celebrate their 100th Lecture! Yes, that’s quite a photographic milestone.

Here is the best part: Even if you don’t live in LA, you can access the lectures online. An incredible collection of photographic insight.
Just go to the HOME page, click on the events/ groups tab, and select Iris Nights
Then click on any one of the previous exhibit names, and you’ll be taken to a viewing screen with all of the related lectures.
If you are passionate about photography on any level, you just can’t miss this stuff.

( Hmmmmm… I wonder if they’ll have cake to celebrate? )

The Space is open Wed-Sun: 11am – 6pm
