The Huntington Library has just opened an exciting new exhibition of photography of Los Angeles and its region. The exhibition is called “This Side of Paradise: Body and Landscape in L.A. Photographs” and includes images spanning 150 years. The show closes Sept. 15, 2008.
“This Side of Paradise: Body and Landscape in L.A. Photographs examines the dynamic relationship between the city and the art of photography from the 1860s to the present. Divided into seven thematic sections – Garden, Move, Work, Play, Dwell, Clash, and Dream – the exhibition explores photographs of the city through the dual lenses of landscape and the human body, as well as the provocative visual interplay between the two.”
