The photography program at Long Beach City College will host its 4th annual PhotoFest@LBCC during the month of April. The theme for this year’s festival is “Photography Now,” a look at how photographers are blurring the boundaries between photography’s various genres and techniques.
The event is expanding to become a citywide and month-long festival of free photography-related events and celebrations throughout the month of April. Its goal is to celebrate photography and its impact on our world while providing opportunities for photographers to socialize and share their enthusiasm for photography.
The main emphasis of the festival will be the workshops, demonstrations, art walks, exhibitions and seminars held throughout the month of April. These events are free, open to students and the general public as well, and suitable for all levels of expertise.
The festival will feature two photography contests– one that is open to everyone, and another that is open to all LBCC students. The opening event will be the April 1 First Fridays art walk in Bixby Knolls, which will include the opening for the Plastic Perception photo contest and an announcement of the show’s winners. There will also be a workshop at Tuttle Cameras that night.
On April 9, the group’s 2nd Saturday Art Walk exhibition and reception downtown will showcase work from the LBCC photography program as well as reveal the student photography contest winners.
Festival seminars will be conducted at multiple locations throughout Long Beach with a core group of events to be held at the Liberal Arts Campus at Long Beach City College. The campus is located at 4901 E. Carson Street, Long Beach, CA. Full details are on registration pages.
All seminars are free but require registration, which is available online at
