My special happiness is to follow in different countries the marvelous human being that is LP, an extraordinary artist with multiple talents.

Marie Randall Based in the Inland Empire of So. Cal. Teacher by day, concert photographer on school nights and whenever possible. I’ve been taking pictures since high school and in college, I set up a darkroom in an extra bathroom. As a kid, I loved the concert pictures in Circus and Creem magazine, and the photos by Mick Rock, Lynn Goldsmith, Neil Zlowzower. To me, concert photography isn’t so much about being technically perfect, but more about getting the attitude and energy of a concert. I use Sony a7 mirrorless cameras and my trusty Sony RX100.

Wednesday Aja is known for documenting modern-day subcultures… and things that go bump (and grind!) in the night. Exploring themes of custom, costume, and community; images invite the viewer into an inverted Land of Oz, one where the imagination ignites in black and white, in the space between light and shadow.

Most recently Wednesday was the Featured Artist at the iconic Hotel Figueroa in Downtown Los Angeles. This 3-month residency featured 32 photographs from ongoing projects centering on the gender, identity, and gravity-defying subcultures of Drag, Burlesque, and Circus. All three subjects hang together as explorations of the self’s relationship to masque, costume, and unbridled expressions of personhood.
