MOPLA (Month of Photography Los Angeles)Multiple locations in Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA, United States) Map it
In April 2009, the inaugural Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA) showcased the enormous photography community, inclusive of commercial, fine art and photojournalism. As the second largest photography community in the United States, Los Angeles provides a distinctive backdrop to the celebration of the photographic image.
MOPLA was established and exists to advance the celebration of Photography through a variety of events and programs designed to inspire and invigorate the photography professional, enthusiast, emerging professional and collector.
MOPLA's two-fold mission is to advance dynamic programming designed to engage and stimulate the photography community, as well as to present a comprehensive resource of exhibitions and events in April.
MOPLA 2014’s theme, Communities and Cultures aims to showcase bodies of work that explore traditional and non-traditional ideas of family, environment, collectives, groups, traditions and lifestyles. Communities and Cultures will focus on Asia in addition to highlighting the photographic community of Los Angeles.
