Name: Venice Arts: Opening Reception - Dotan Saguy's "Venice Beach, The Last Days of a Bohemian Paradise"
Date: August 11, 2018
Time: 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM PDT
Join us for the premiere of photographer Dotan Saguy’s stunning photo documentary about the extraordinary but endangered culture of Venice Beach. In capturing the revelations of this colorful, tattooed, costumed community, Saguy has created a body of work with unexpected, enthusiastic surprise. His meticulously composed, compassionate photographs unabashedly praise the rarity of the unique individuals who populate the sands of Venice. Unfortunately, Venice Beach sits on the edge of a knife, as the forces of gentrification and corporate expansion threaten to squash the way of life that has defined Venice for decades. Allow yourself to be mesmerized—as Dotan Saguy has been—by this way of life, before it fades away.
The exhibit will be on display at Venice Arts from August 11th to September 30th.
