It's Holiday Time ... Gift Ideas for Him, Her & Them

Known for her truly unique photographs of books, maps and newspapers, Cara Barer's images happen by chance while others are created through purposeful experimentation.
Just in time for the holidays, Cara has added some wonderful new images to her original repertoire of work which you will find on the website.
Whether you're looking for a gift for a world traveler (maps), a bookworm (novels), an avid consumer of news (newspapers) or for a young child (book of fairy tales), Barer has transformed many of these daily objects into curious and wonderful works of art.

Deborah Parkin is the one to watch and is the gallery's "rising star".

Deborah says that she "has always been drawn to the theme of childhood, whether it has been recreating her own personal memories, making images of her children, recording their childhood or working with children using ancient photographic processes."

What better way to start your child's photography collection - give the gift of art!
It will last a lifetime!
Below are two NEW images that Deborah has sent in time for PhotoLA 2014.**


The Langly Wind



Camille Seaman's photographs have received world wide attention and we have recently shipped them to London, Australia and Singapore!
Although equally popular and of equal strength and importance, the work from the Big Cloud and The Lovely Monster series is continuing -- for another 5 years - while the work from The Last Iceberg has ended and will be published in a monograph by Princeton Architectural Press in the Fall, 2014.

Seldom Seen by George Tice

Books make great gifts and most of the artist's books that we have are first edition, and have the added feature of being signed. I have signed copies of Yousuf Karsh's 50 Year Retrospective, 1988, first edition; George Tice's most recent publication, Seldom Seen, and two signed copies of Roman Loranc's first book, Two Hearted Oak, also first edition. A handmade copy of Larry Vogel's book, Creativity: The Seeker's Journey can be completed by the holidays if you place your order now.
