Hollywood, CA – Daniel Marlos, Chair of the Media Arts/Photography/Journalism Department at Los Angeles City College (LACC), has announced four advanced second year LACC Photography students,

Fridgeir Helgason, Vania Castellaw, Cheryl Aguba and Yamin Li, have been chosen to participate in an exclusive free photographic student exhibition, “emerging (I) 3,” to be presented by Freestyle Photographic Supplies and The Creative Center for Photography, 5124 Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, CA  90027, from April 24 –

June 24, 2008.

 

            Marlos said, “Fridgeir Helgason’s image of a vacant parking lot in downtown Los Angeles was chosen as the exhibition invitation image, and is part of a series entitled ‘Kiosks of Loneliness.’  Vania Casellaw’s image was her final project in her large format photography class, Photography 1, and it is a studio still life with a humorous twist.  Cheryl Aguba is exhibiting an image from her Fundamentals of Portraiture class entitled ‘Karla in a Coffee Shop.’  Yamin Li, who is heavily influenced by Asian cinema, will exhibit a staged, highly charged emotional introspective image of a young woman in a laundry.”

 

            The diverse images in this show represent the keen eye and emerging vision of a talented new generation of photographers.  “emerging (I) 3” opens with an Artist Reception on Thursday, April 24, 2008 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.  The exhibition runs through June 25, 2008.

 

            The images have been selected by members of the Freestyle Educational Steering Committee, a group of dedicated photographic educators committed to teaching darkroom skills to the photographers of tomorrow.  They offer advice and council to Freestyle Photographic Supplies in matters of curriculum and creative techniques.  The Steering Committee also serves as a forum for the educators’ thoughts and concerns about photography in the modern classroom.

 

            The Creative Center for Photography is the home of the Advisory Board of Photographic Professionals and the Educational Steering Committee, and houses one of the finest collections of fine-art photography.  The Center is located in Freestyle’s landmark Hollywood headquarters and retail store located at 5124 Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, CA  90027.
