DTLA FASHION DISTRICT REFLECTION GREEN by Liz Moser
(click on photo to see bio plus review)

CURATOR STEVE GRODY: "Part of the enjoyment of being an outdoor photographer is that it makes you want to keep your eyes open for the interesting image, in this case the whimsical juxtaposition of the gaudy products "dressing up" a reflection of otherwise plain industrial buildings."
 
 
Liz Moser says of her work, "After many years away from the practice of art I have found my way back into the fold by taking the time to closely examine, and then visually interpret, the world around me. As a photographer, I find beauty and inspiration in the patterns and textures found in our physical surroundings, whether observed on the forest floor, beach sand patterns created by heavy equipment or the wind, architecture, the tagged walls of the urban environment, cracks in a sidewalk, as well as stacked shipping containers in a port city. I also integrate painting and photography to re-construct and re-combine what (and how) I see in new ways. I find the relationships in the geometry of patterns found in disparate places, and explore those connections in my assemblages. After experiencing my work, I challenge the viewer to see their world in a different way; to appreciate the beauty, and to find meaning, in their familiar surroundings." 
Moser has received the National Endowment for the Arts Emerging Artists Fellowship and recently exhibited at the Brayer Gallery, Ventura, CA and has been part of YourDailyPhotograph.com at the Duncan Miller Gallery, Santa Monica, CA

CURATOR STEVE GRODY: "Another nice "catch of the moment" with the strong fire escape shadows, tree shadows, geometric building lines and touch of graffiti providing a nice mix."

NOTHING ERASES THE PAST by Maureen Bond
(click on photo to see bio plus review)

CURATOR STEVE GRODY:  "The plainness of the wall versus the organic form of the tree, and the crosses versus the graffiti on the truck present a nice range of formal/textural contrasts with the variety of human expression."
Maureen Bond is a fine art photographer born and raised in Los Angeles, California and still calls it home. Having spent the last 15 years in higher education, Maureen has recently moved on to become the Executive Director of a non-profit Community Center.
By day her work keeps her challenged, and by night her creativity emerges from shooting the streets of Los Angeles and searching for abandoned decaying confines. Her photos feature coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections.  Her favorite place to photograph the nocturnal world is the desert under the full moon. Bond's motivation  for photography comes from her pleasure in the quest to notice things; she is thrilled to stand before something seemingly ordinary and to find something extraordinary about it. She explains her shooting method: "In the pursuit of my images, she is always mindful that even familiar locations can hold fascinatingly new perspectives. She often travels with a small assortment of cameras to help photograph places in creative and new ways." For more info about Maureen Bond, go to:
