New Edition of ASC Photo Gallery Opens at Clubhouse

Participating photographer Robert Primes, ASC raises a glass in celebration.

On Saturday, September 9, the second edition of the ASC Photo Gallery exhibit opened at the historic ASC Clubhouse in Hollywood, featuring outstanding images created by contributing Society members. 

Attendees packed the house and were treated to an diverse array of work that celebrates and documents unique environments — often suggesting a distinct narrative. Some are more traditional landscapes, while others take note of unique human interaction within the given space.

The representative 45 images — five from each contributor — were curated by Paris Chong, manager of the Leica Gallery LA.

Lieberman not only coordinated the previous ASC Photo Gallery show — held at the Clubhouse on March 18, with images available at the ASC Store — but personally printed all the photos on display, working closely alongside his fellow photographers to make sure their work looked exactly right on opening night.

“Originally, we thought our first show’s theme was ‘portraits’ and this second one would be ‘landscapes,’ but I like to think of them as ‘faces’ and ‘places,’” says Lieberman. “These categories aren’t so mutually exclusive or restrictive; often we see subjects in their environment, so it may not technically be a pure portrait image. Conversely, people are often key components to a landscape and help define the space.”

The ASC Photo Gallery will be in place for the next few weeks and is open to the public, but visitors must first RSVP to [email protected]. The show is scheduled to be open through the end of September.

Museum-quality prints and custom box sets of images are available for purchase at the Clubhouse will soon be via the ASC Store.
