Los Angeles--Cactus Gallery in Eagle Rock (Northeast Los Angeles) is proud to present Shut Up & Shoot: A Photography Show of Unexpected Moments. The show will open on November 11, 2006.
"Shut Up & Shoot" features eleven photographers from the Los Angeles area and Washington State. The photographers come from very diverse backgrounds, but share common ground in their passion for shooting everyday life, be they complex or simple images.
The photographs chosen, display an intensity that will make you pause and look, from Andrew Ward's shot of the glaring eyes of a young boy inhaling glue, to Wanda Benvenutti's emotionally charged "Love," and Aurelio José Barrera's accordion player on a street in Boyle Heights, these images will stay engrained in your mind because of their depth and humanness.
This is a show that Los Angeles photography enthusiasts must see. Besides Los Angeles photographer, Angela María Ortíz S., who curates and displays in the show, other photographers are: Ariana de Lena, Domenico Foschi, Kevin Gray, Claire Morales, Aja Kai Rowley, David Saucedo and Lorena Villegas.
Cactus Gallery is a vibrant space for creative people. We seek to inspire & enliven the community by giving opportunities to experience the eclectic diversity that is the arts.
