Thinking About ’70 s L.A. now most likely evokes the golden days of Laurel Canyon, shenanigans on the Sundown Strip, or perhaps a couple of New Age cults However a brand-new group program at Joseph Bellows Gallery peels away a few of those layers of fond memories to reveal pictures of how the area sought to professional photographers as they lived it.

Operate in the program originates from professional photographers Bevan Davies, Philip Melnick, John Humble, Grant Mudford, Terry Wild, and Ave Pildas. The images chosen from each artist capture little minutes of how the city took a look at the time. A few of the areas are still identifiable now, others have actually progressed more noticeably in the occurring years.
