The LACP is hosting an online fundraising Gala, “A Love Letter to L.A” on Saturday, October 24, 2020. This virtual Gala will honor acclaimed photographer Douglas Kirkland and his esteemed wife Francoise Kirkland, Los Angeles photographer Estevan Oriol, and the Los Angeles Times photography staff.


LACP is proud to honor the recipients of the 2020 Stieglitz Award, award-winning celebrity photographer Douglas Kirkland and his wife, Francoise Kirkland, for their decades of continued excellence and commitment to the photographic community of Los Angeles.  The Stieglitz Award is a new award given to one photographer annually by the Los Angeles Center of Photography.  It is meant to honor an extremely accomplished member of the photographic community— someone who continually gives back to the community, to emerging photographers, to students, and to the LACP.  LACP will also acknowledge the work of Los Angeles photographer Estevan Oriol who has been photographing the street culture in Los Angeles for decades, juxtaposing the glamorous and gritty planes of the city’s eclectic communities. Estevan began his career as a hip-hop club bouncer turned tour manager for popular Los Angeles-based rap groups Cypress Hill and House of Pain. During the Gala, LACP will feature a segment that recognizes and showcases the work of the incredibly brave heroes of the Los Angeles Times photography staff who have been on the front lines of the pandemic and protests throughout Los Angeles.
