    "I love this place. I can benefit a lot from it because it really contributes to me as a professional but also as a person. I think so highly of the Annenberg Space for Photography. There is no other museum like it!"
    -- Nini Valentina, regular Photo Space visitor, professional make-up artist

    "I think the space is state-of-the-art! [Wallis Annenberg] went all out. Her generosity of spirit is so profound. It's such an invitation to the public.... Bottom line is that I am really impressed."

    We have heard a lot of great chatter amongst our Annenberg Space for Photography attendees. After compiling some quotes, listening to what visitors thought about the Space and our lecturers, here is what they had to say:

    The Andrew Southam lecture

    "Loved it! It was so nice to listen to someone talk about art and communicate it so well... instead of just telling stories he got into how he did it and why." "I love the space. It is such a dream for photographers to not have to pay a lot to see such wonderful photos. I need to come and spend a couple hours here."
    (Amy Cantrell, photographer, attending 2nd IRIS Nights lecture)


    "It was really inspiring. I loved that he was so real about everything."
    (Madison Enloe, aspiring photographer, attending her 2nd IRIS Nights lecture)

    "[The Space] is an extraordinary gift to LA for both professional photographers and non-photographers. It allows them to interact. We are really gifted to have Annenberg here. Everything is really on the mark."
    (Chad Slattery, regular attendee)


    "I loved it! I am a non-photographer, unlike my husband. But that is the gift. There are a range of subjects and you don't have to be a photographer to love it - just a human being."
    (Donna Lee Slattery, non-photographer, regular attendee)

    The next time you're here tell Viewfinder what you think.
