Classic Photographs Los Angeles is this weekend. With 27 high-level international galleries and dealers exhibiting, including I Photo Central photo dealers, Lee Gallery, Contemporary Works/Vintage Works, and Paul Hertzmann, this is the second best opportunity after the AIPAD New York Photography Show to find quality photography, and is not to be missed.

CPLA has announced two curatorial events led by Robert Flynn Johnson, Curator Emeritus Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, CA, and April M. Watson, Curator of Photography, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO. Each of these accomplished curators will join attendees in a private walk-through of the show prior to the fair's public hours.

Photographer Michael Kenna will be signing copies of his new book, France, on Saturday, January 17 at 3 pm. This publication from Nazraeli Press was edited by the artist himself, who selected both well-known and previously unpublished material from his own archive.

The show is held at Bonhams auction rooms at 7601 W. Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90046. This location is just six blocks east of Fairfax in West Hollywood. Ample free parking is available in two lots located directly behind Bonhams, as well as metered street parking. Regular show hours are Saturday, January 17: 11 am-7 pm; and Sunday, January 18: 11-5 pm.
