Los Angeles Photo Festival Documents Turkish Culture


From August 11-15, 2015, the second annual Los Angeles Photo Festival  will host Concept: Turkey, a major exhibition of recent Turkish street photography. Launched in 2014, the festival celebrates photography and its unique ability to translate culture into a single language.

A panel of six judges has selected a total of 35 pieces for inclusion in the gallery.  These works delve into Turkey’s regional traditions and social issues, and together serve as important documentation of contemporary Turkish culture. Guests are encouraged to participate in the Art Walk Special Event, held on August 13, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., where they can enjoy the artists’ work and indulge in wines from the Turkish-owned winery Sevtap, the 2015 California Travel Association’s “Winery of the Year.”

Images will be presented from over 35 photographers, promoting diversity and cultural understanding in the United States. This opportunity is suited for a variety of tastes, from art enthusiasts and culturists to anyone wishing to learn more about contemporary Turkey.

It will be held at the Hatakeyama Gallery, 905 S Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90015.
