Mission Statement of FANFARE–LA
FANFARE–LA was established to promote serious art by photographers working in fine art nude, fetish subject matter, and sexually charged ideas that engage and provoke the viewer while overlapping fashion, erotica, and commentary concerning human sexuality. Often neglected in the fine art world because of the controversy inherent in confronting sexuality directly, erotically charged fine art photography nevertheless has a rich history in the Los Angeles region, which has served as the backdrop for such legendary photographers as Helmut Newton and Herb Ritts, as well as more recent artists like Steve Diet Goedde. Southern California remains a primary source for provocative contemporary culture, from the sophisticated to the unrefined. One person's art may be another person's pornography, and we aren't here to make that distinction for you. We will showcase the work of both established and emerging artists with the goal of both challenging you and arousing you, while never concerning ourselves with what is politically correct. In an age where any type of pruriency is just a few clicks away, certainly there is room for an exhibition of photographers who aspire to make it into art.
