Fabrik Magazine - Issue 20
Showcasing LA's enormous photography community, MOPLA (Month of Photography Los Angeles) sets the agenda for Fabrik's 20th issue as photography becomes a city-wide focus with a variety of events and programs, designed to inspire and invigorate the photography professional, enthusiast and collector. This issue spotlights celebrity photographer Karen Bystedt's The Lost Warhols, which offer an intimate glimpse beyond Andy Warhol's meticulously constructed persona. At 94, genius autodidact Saul Leiter's pioneering use of color in his New York street photography gets the art-world respect it deserves. A profile of emerging photographer Katrina Umber and curatorial entity 5790projects sources eight emergent and mid-career artists whose works are foregrounded by photography. In his Museum Views, Frank sees Miriam Wosk's embrace of mortality at Santa Monica Museum of Art and the Hammer Museum's survey of Llyn Foulkes' integral role in LA’s rich tradition of social protest.
