Over the course of fifteen years, photo l.a. has become one of the most popular photography fairs in the country, bringing together over seventy galleries and private dealers from around the globe. Highlighting the finest works of the medium, from classic 19th Century photography, to contemporary images including digital and photo-based artwork. Last year, photo l.a. had a record attendance of over 7500 visitors, and its numbers and popularity only continue to grow.
In time, three other national fairs grew out of photo l.a.: photo santa fewas the first, enjoying a seven-year run until Stephen decided to shift his focus back to California and open photo san francisco in 2000 . Then in 2004, photo new york was born. And in 2005 he created the wildly successful contemporary art fair, artLA, which in its debut year attracted over 5000 visitors to the Santa Monica Civic Center.
