Election depression? You can Stand with Planned Parenthood tonight!
One of my favorite LA photographers is having an opening tonight to support Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. Maggie West is well known for her dreamy colorful romanic portraits and for this series she’s tapped a variety if instagram celebrities and superstar bloggers that often permeate our hyper-aware internet culture. Yesterday was painful but you can support a great and essential cause and enjoy some art this evening at leiminspace 7-11pm
“While there have been many celeb portrait series for charities in the past, Stand showcases a new kind of celebrity. While many of the people in the series might be virtually unknown to anyone over 45, the models featured in West’s series are highly influential to a post-internet generation. From superstar bloggers Gaby Dunn and Alison Raskin, to writer Melissa Broder (of the twitter sensation @sosadtoday), feminist porn star Janice Griffith, to emerging art stars Brittney Scott, Kitten Janae and Arvida Bystom, West has photographed a diverse and talented group of women that speak to a younger generation.” ~ Maggie West
