About the Book
A selection of thirty contemporary and fine art photographs, twenty-seven photographers, one school.
Modern art has never been defined by boundaries, mental or physical, government
enforced or socially implied. Art exists everywhere and nowhere but From Within .
The formidable Long Beach City College Photo Club exhibition is being shown locally at
the renowned OMC Gallery for Contemporary Art in Huntington Beach's Old World. The
group work upholds photographs in essence, of inner expression, melded with societal
and economic frustration. A notion wielded by the students to establish a solid ground
for intrigue and interest.
The Long Beach City College Photography Club Exhibition. November 4 to 28, OMC Gallery, Huntington Beach, California.
