In April 2009, the inaugural Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA) showcased the enormous photography community, inclusive of commercial, fine art and photojournalism. As the second largest photography community in the United States, Los Angeles provides a distinctive backdrop to the celebration of the photographic image.
MOPLA was established and exists to celebrate photography through a variety of events and programs that 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.
Month of Photography Los Angeles is presented by the Lucie Foundation.
