Annenberg Space for Photography

We've wanted to check out the Annenberg Foundations new gallery space for photography for a few weeks now, and as luck would have it, today we were in the neighborhood! We really didn't have a lot of expectations regarding it, and we were very pleasantly surprised by the high tech space and by the quality of the photographs that were displayed. We were a little intimidated by the vast parking structure and the building in which the space is housed, but if you were thinking of going, don't let it deter you! Once you make it up to the main level it's sort of like being in the office building version of the Getty. There are eleven Los Angeles photographers on display there now, and the subject matter and style varies, but the quality is consistent. One thing that surprised both Kelly and I is that the architectural photos were some of our favorites. Maybe the high-def screens and soothing soundtrack made them stand out a little more for us. It's an interesting way to view photographs, and I think they make it work.


Located at 2000 Avenue of the Stars in Century City, Los Angeles.
