Digital Darkroom is now open at the Space and last week's opening night gala saw almost all of the photographers gather at the Annenberg Foundation offices above the Photography Space to celebrate. Just before the party, 16 of the 17 artists (Khuong Nguyen was definitely missed!) posed for this once in a lifetime group shot.
After the upstairs festivities, the photographers joined the rest of the revelers downstairs at the Space to enjoy the amazing artwork presented Digital Darkroom, our 8th exhibit.
Here's the show's Pierre Beteille with friend to the Space (and L8S ANGL3ES photographer) Douglas Kirkland and his wife Françoise.
Partygoers learn more about the art by maneuvering the Microsoft Surface tables.
And here's Steve Kochones, whose Arclight Productions produced both the feature film and 3D movie that accompany the exhibit.
Kirkland poses with Digital Darkroom curatorial advisor Russell Brown.
Brown gets silly with 3D artist Mike Pucher. Get your own free 3D glasses at the Space!
Annenberg Foundation Executive Director took to the podium to say a few words just before the presentation of the 3D film.
He was followed by Brown who then introduced...
The Space's Pat Lanza, our Director of Talent and Content.
Time for another group shot of the photographers and a round of applause, just before the start of the film.
Brooke Shaden, whose work is showcased in the show, takes a seat while she and her guests absorb the film for Digital Darkroom.
Ted Grudowski went around the party taking photos - in 3D! Look for those images here very soon.
Claudia Kunin and a partygoer enjoy the gala.
Martine Roch poses in front of her photographs.
Pierre Beteille's images can be very playful - just like him!
Jerry Uelsmann and Russell Brown also get a little silly toward the end of the night.
Everyone loved wearing their 3D glasses - this was the most popular pose of the night! Remember, hang on to your 3D glasses when you visit the Space. We'll have a slew of 3D content for you to look at on The Shot very soon.
Digital Darkroom runs through May 28, 2012! Come see the show soon!
