Burlesque!
The Monday Night Tease Retrospective

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Burlesque! — The Monday Night Tease Retrospective celebrates nine years of live performances at LA’s longest weekly running burlesque show. Since 2004, Monday Night Tease has been a staple in the variety arts world. Described as the heartbeat of the Los Angeles burlesque scene, it is a home to local performers as well as a destination for out of town artists. Producer Lili VonSchtupp prides herself with launching new talent as well as nurturing established performers to take risks and further their art form. Several burlesque shows have come and gone, but every Monday the backstage area of The Three Clubs in Hollywood pulses with the beat of makeup, glitter, shimmy belts, and pasties. The energy presented weekly at Monday Night Tease is unmatched and we are proud to share it with you through a collection of images captured by some of LA’s premier event photographers.

PHOTOGRAPHERS
Featuring work by Andrija Bloom, Azul DelGrasso, Brian C. Janes, Chris Beyond, Dan Hendricks, Ginger Liu, Jason Kamimura, Laura Creecy, PhotoJenInc, Samuel Hernandez, and Tom Yi.

Ansel Adams Los Angeles at drkrm Gallery

Ansel Adams Los Angeles

February 18 -March 17, 2012

Opening Reception Saturday, February 18, 2012 7-10pm

 

drkrm is pleased to present Ansel Adams Los Angeles, rarely seen photographs that reveal the lost landscape and lifestyle of a prewar Los Angeles. These nostalgic images represent Ansel Adams as a photojournalist on assignment for Fortune Magazine in 1939. Ansel Adams Los Angeles will be on display from February 18 through March 17, 2012.

 

In 1939 Los Angeles had a population of 1.5 million. The cost of gas was 10 cents and a new car was $700. It was the year The Wizard of Oz and Gone With The Wind were released. Francis Ford Coppola, Ralph Lauren and Lee Harvey Oswald were born. Amelia Earhart was officially pronounced dead and President Roosevelt initiated the Manhattan Project. The U.S. began rearming for World War II and the prestigious Ansel Adams was commissioned by Fortune Magazine to photograph a series of images for an article covering the aviation industry in the Los Angeles area. For the project, Adams took over 200 black & white photographs showing everyday life, businesses, street scenes and a variety of other subjects. But when the article, City of the Angels, appeared in the March 1941 issue, only a few of the images were included.

In the early 1960s Adams rediscovered the photographs among papers at his home in Carmel and donated them to the Los Angeles Public Library. He wrote in a letter: “The weather was bad over a rather long period and none of the pictures were very good… I would imagine that they represent about $100.00 minimum value… At any event, I do not want them back.” But as many critics will agree, sometimes an artist is not always the best judge of their own work.

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) created some of the most influential photographs ever made; he was one of this century’s leading exponents of environmental values. It seems that every third family in America has an Adams’ poster on the wall, images that were difficult to make but easy to love. His images portray a romanticized and unspoiled Western American landscape, but Ansel Adams Los Angeles is a whole other body of work that is rarely discussed, let alone seen.

drkrm, in association with EVFA, and with the cooperation of the Los Angeles Public Library, will create and exhibit new silver-gelatin prints made from the original negatives. These dramatic black and white limited-edition photographs, on display to the public for the first time, will be offered for purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the LAPL.

Ansel Adams Los Angeles is part of Pacific Standard Time. Pacific Standard Time is an unprecedented collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California, coming together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene. Initiated through grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time will take place for six months beginning October 2011.

Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America.

 

drkrm is an exhibition space dedicated to the display and survey of popular cultural images, fine art photography, cutting edge and alternative photographic processes. drkrm is located at 727 S. Spring Street in the Gallery Row district of Downtown Los Angeles.

Content tips for filmmakers using SEO, Keywords and Google

 

 

 

SEO, Keywords and Google:

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a technique used to improve the visibility of a website or web page. The best visibility is first page ranking on search engines such as Google. When users type in Keywords in to Google’s search box, out of the hundreds of thousands, even millions of links on the web, your site should come up first if the proper SEO has been put into place. SEO is not instant but sees results over time.

For instant, if I wanted to know about 2011 film festivals in Los Angeles I would enter the following in Google’s Search box:

film festival, los angeles 2011

What Google comes up with is hundreds of URLs for 2011 film festivals in Los Angeles. Those with the biggest online presence are at the top. How do they get there?

Techniques:

  • Use Keywords always and often on social networks, blogs, press releases and on the website. These include the name of your brand or event and what’s on offer. For example, Los Angeles Film Festival 2011is pretty self explanitory but used often in content gets it picked up in search engines. Define SEO even more and savvy social media experts can get your brand or event to top Google listings with just the keywords, Film Festival. But SEO takes time; it takes months so you need to be patient with your SEO guy.

Tips for online content SEO:

  • Encourage links to your content from Influencers, i.e. sponsors, bloggers.
  • Post often to blogs and social networks. Search engines like fresh content.
  • Social Bookmarking – post all URLs (links) to sites such as Digg and Stumblupon where users can view your links.
