Have you guys heard of MOPLA? MOPLA stands for Month of Photography Los Angeles, a celebration of photography during the month of April that takes the form of exhibitions, discussions, and presentations across the city.

From their website:

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.

This year’s theme is Intersect: An Exploration of Innovation and Technology in Contemporary Photography, which aims to address and acknowledge the monumental role technology has played in photography in the last few years. Check out the schedule for MOPLA events by clicking here.

I’m in a MOPLA group show at Smashbox Studios in Culver City tomorrow night. Stop by and say hi if you’re in the area!
