Dirty | Pretty Show - Opening Reception, Saturday March 21st 5-8PM

Dirty | Pretty, an exhibition of photography by thirteen Los Angeles photographers opens at the Julia Dean Gallery on March 21st and runs through May 22nd. The photographers were challenged to explore the idea of beauty and filth in a city obsessed with those concepts.

As observers of culture, these Los Angeles photographers interpret a society that has become infatuated with pretty (artifice and plastic surgery encouraged) and the various types of dirt (scandals, sex, and plain old dirt). Each photographer - and viewer - brings their own subjective perception to those themes and their junction, dichotomy or conflict.

Dirty | Pretty includes a variety of photographic media – Chromogenic prints, traditional silver prints and GiclĂ©e prints. The artists in the show have had solo and group shows. Their works have been published by SilverShotz, Shots Magazine, Ag Magazine, Light Leaks, CMYK Magazine, Lens Culture, F-Stop, File Magazine and JPG Magazine.

Artists: Eric Bickford, Maura Brennan, Phil Condit, Marian Crostic, Sylvia Denlinger, Erich Hoeber, Robby Larson, Pieter Lessing, Liv Naesheim, Angela Palmieri, Shelby Ring, Aline Smithson, and Lee Tonks.
