Road to Freedom Exhibition Review by Anthony Friedkin
I find it unfathomable that human beings could treat each other so horrendously, based simply on the color of one's skin. To me it sounds like a bad science fiction novel. But as time has shown, truth is stranger than fiction when it comes to human history.

Grant Mudford Interview by Anthony Friedkin
Grant Mudford
Grant Mudford is considered one of the most skillful and extraordinary photographers alive today. He is regarded as one of the finest architectural photographers to have ever worked in the field. Among his numerous and impressive credits, he was personally selected by Frank Gehry and the Los Angeles Philharmonic to photograph the construction and completion of Disney Hall and subsequent book. He was chosen by publisher Rizzoli to create the photographs used in a superb book on the work of the legendary architect Louis I. Kahn. He is a highly respected fine-art photographer with substantial credits as well. His personal work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the J. Paul Getty Museum, LACMA, MOCA and many other prestigious international institutions. He received a National Endowment of the Arts Fellowship grant for photography in 1980. The Rosamund Felsen gallery in Los Angeles represents him. Recently I had an opportunity to interview Grant and discuss both his professional career as an architectural photographer and his individual work as an artist.

Introduction to Samy's Newsletter
Los Angeles is one of the most important and vibrant centers for photography in the world. We have enormous resources here, great institutions dedicated to exhibiting fine art photography, such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Huntington Library, the new Annenberg Space for Photography and the Museum of Contemporary Art located in downtown Los Angeles. Together, with their holdings, they represent a world-class collection of extraordinary photographs. We also have several noteworthy private galleries that are dedicated to showing contemporary photography as well. LA is home to numerous and highly respected educational facilities, which offer significant courses in photography and film production. We Angelenos are known to live in one of the eminent creative capitals of the world and it is my intention the newly designed newsletter will celebrate this with exciting articles of interest.

Robert Frank's
Robert Frank
A powerful photograph can change our lives and help us better realize who we are and the world we live in. By defining and immortalizing a moment so indelibly and with great skill the image itself takes on transcendental qualities. When this is done within a whole group of photographs the experience can be awesome, historically relevant and can alter the course of an art form. Such is the case with Robert Frank's seminal work "The Americans" which is currently on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) on Grand Ave in downtown Los Angeles. I can with full confidence suggest you see this amazing set of photographs in person, not only for their historical significance, but to experience the photographs first hand, in the way Frank choose to have them printed and viewed.
