Taking a picture is not nearly as complicated as it used to be. A digital sensor captures an image, which is saved as a digital file and then printed out with little fanfare. The digital revolution has brought complete control over photography to consumers, but has also dehumanized the actual process of making a picture. Ron Dietel, a local old-fashioned photography enthusiast, is resisting this trend in the most extreme way possible. His day job is at UCLA, in the Education Research department, but in his free time, Dietel takes photographs using old-fashioned cameras, and develops the film himself to create his own prints.

Alecia Foster HOOVER HIGH SCHOOL -- Jordan Watrous was disappointed after being passed over for a photography position on his school's newspaper. "I've been interested in photography for a long time," the Hoover High School 11th-grader said. He was given a writing position instead. His luck changed halfway through the school year, when the entire photo staff of the Tornado Times quit, giving the Hoover journalism student his big break. That chance earned him an award.

Regardless of size, a good art show can transport an audience outside of its everyday reality and into another space of consciousness, however briefly. If a small-scale exhibition does this, the possibility of a meaningful emotional connection between a viewer and the artist increases exponentially. Intimacy has tremendous potential for transformative experience in a way that a blockbuster show (where people shuffle through like so much cattle) seldom does. That's what is happening at the moment in the Norton Simon's new "Face It: The Photographic Portrait.

Back in 1977, Dennis Reed read something that intrigued him: There once had been a vibrant society of Japanese American photographers, including first-rate modernists, but with the advent of World War II and U.S. internment camps, all of their work had been lost. “Nothing survived,” the photography educator and historian remembers reading in that article. He wondered about that. Reed spent the next few years researching the subject. He found that not only was there evidence of the work in books and surviving prints, but the work was exceptional.

Ken Goldman was only 13 the first time he picked up a 2-by-4 rasp, a very coarse type of wood, and filed it until it resembled an airplane. “I’ve been hooked since then,” said the 61-year-old La Crescenta resident, who is showing his wood sculptures and photography this month at Whites Art Framing & Restoration in Montrose. All of his sculptures are unique, and every single one tells a different story, store owner Miguel Perez said. “It’s best for people to come and see them and enjoy,” he said.

Recently I visited Rick Caruso’s newly opened Americana at Brand. I am a graduate student from San Francisco conducting research for my MFA thesis on thematic design; as such, the stunning architecture of Americana was a must-see. After being on the premises for a couple of minutes, I began snapping a few pictures for my research, and was immediately accosted by an albeit friendly security guard who informed me that all student, commercial, industry and entertainment photography must be pre-approved.
