Tuesday, April 7, 2009
5:30 – 9:00 pm
Known for his recent Polaroid images of Los Angeles, Jim McHugh has been photographing common things in an uncommon manner for over thirty years. This collection of his work spans Europe, Asia as well as America and reflects the varied and changing threads of the photographer’s ever altering life.
In 2008, Jim won the Paris Prix De La Photographie for Architectural Fine Art Photography. The Photokina 2008/Innova Digital Art’s Exhibition, “Just One More,” held in Cologne, Germany included McHugh portraits of visual artists David Hockney, Andy Warhol and Ansel Adams as well as performing artists Samuel L. Jackson, Sir Anthony Hopkins and B.B. King.
This year his “Las Palmas Hotel- Hollywood” was acquired by the George Eastman House for their permanent collection in Rochester, N.Y. Jim McHugh is currently a Contributing Photographer to Architectural Digest.
This April immediately following West Week 2009 the inaugural Month of Photography in Los Angeles (MOPLA) will debut at the landmark Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Remarkable: Places + Faces is honored to be a part of this engaging and dedicated artistic program. MOPLA is organized by the Lucie Foundation, dedicated to education and the celebration of the art of photography.
