Photo Independent: Ground breaking artist-only photographic art fair debuts in Hollywood this April 2014
Graham Howe, Culver City.
LOS ANGELES, CA.- PHOTO INDEPENDENT, launching April 24-27 at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, CA is the first and only high-visibility platform for independent photographers. An artist-only fair, PHOTO INDEPENDENT is a forum for direct exchange of ideas and contact between photographic artists, collectors and art professionals. The inaugural edition of the art fair will also feature specialized programs including panel discussions, lectures, roundtables, and docent tours.

Produced by Fabrik Media, an LA-based multifaceted publishing and marketing agency, PHOTO INDEPENDENT’s goal -- to connect professional and emerging photographic artists with larger global audiences -- is in line with the company’s overarching mission to support and provide a regional and international network for artists. Scheduled to run concurrently with, and next door to, Paris Photo Los Angeles, PHOTO INDEPENDENT’s annual showcase will provide curators, galleries, collectors, editors, and arts enthusiasts the opportunity to discover the best photographic talent today, and acquire exciting new works.

“Photo Independent was developed to fill a void in the art fair marketplace,” states Chris Davies, President of Fabrik Media, and Founder of PHOTO INDEPENDENT. “Extremely talented photographers were being under-represented within the conventional art fair structure. PHOTO INDEPENDENT provides a valuable platform for these photographers, who don’t normally have the opportunity to exhibit within a traditional art fair context. We are proud to be launching the first endeavor of this kind in Los Angeles, a city with a passionate and highly active creative photography community.”

Daniell Cornell, Deputy Director for Art and Senior Curator at the Palm Springs Art Museum, curator, photo-historian and artist, Graham Howe, along with fellow curator and gallerist Sarah Lee and Eve Schillo, Collections Manager at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, will lead the PHOTO INDEPENDENT Selection Committee to ensure that the Fair will serve as a montage of today's diverse photographic landscape from the world's most exciting talent.

Photo Independent is currently accepting submissions from fine art photographers worldwide. For more information about Photo Independent, please visit www.photoindependent.com.
