LA Update

Posted on April 23, 2013 by Alexandra Avakian


Dear Family, Friends, Colleagues,

Update: LA was amazing! 

I was working with The Annenberg Space For Photography as a featured artist in the WAR/Photography exhibit they have up till June, 

and am featured with several esteemed colleagues in the companion documentary.

The Annenberg Space is a gorgeous palace for photography in Los Angeles, and has done an exquisite job with this exhibit. 

I am very honored to be a part of this show, which was created by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Deepest thanks to you at MFAH and ASFP. Next the exhibit will travel to The Corcoran Museum in D.C., and The Brooklyn Museum.

I did The Annenberg Space For Photography's Iris Nights Lecture Series on 4/4, titled: Malibu Teen to Conflict Photographer and Beyond

and a signing of my memoir Windows of the Soul: My Journeys in the Muslim World,  published by National Geographic Books with its lovely John Fahey, Jr. - written introduction. 

The LA audience was the best ever! Could not have asked for a better one. Very expressive, they really got it and gave back the energy and passion. 

I did much press, including the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Magazine, Malibu Times, radio, podcasts, blogging and more. 

Here is my interview  on Los Angeles' most popular drive-time radio sho KPCC's Take Two!

Now multi-tasking as ever; at work on 3 exciting personal projects.

Thank you. XOXO,
