Two Photographer Programs in November

Photo Friends and the Los Angeles Public Library invite you to two special November programs, celebrating local photographers William Reagh and George Mann.

First up is the Southern California release party for The Book Club of California's new book, William Reagh: A Long Walk Downtown, Photographs of Los Angeles & Southern California 1936-1991. Reagh's son Patrick, and Michael Dawson will be giving a presentation, and light refreshments will be served afterwards.

Saturday, November 3rd, 2pm.
Mark Taper Auditorium, Central Library
630 W. 5th Street, 90071

Next is "George Mann's Lost Los Angeles." The Los Angeles Visionaries Association, the On Bunker Hill time travel blog, the Los Angeles Public Library Photo Collection and Photo Friends present an evening celebrating the photographic work of the late George Mann (1905-1977) as it was meant to be seen: in jaw-dropping Kodachrome 3-D. George Mann’s rediscovered color images of mid-century Los Angeles are astonishing, and a must-see for anyone who loves the city and wants to know it better. The event celebrates the recent donation by the George Mann Archive of a portfolio of Bunker Hill prints to the Los Angeles Public Library.

Wednesday, November 14th, 6pm
Mark Taper Auditorium, Central Library
630 W. 5th Street, 90071

Both events are free and open to the public. No reservations required.
