Festival : Month of Photography - Los Angeles

Sound a bit of everything in the 2009 Month of Photography Festival in Los Angeles, there are interesting exhibition and some historical photography like for Paul Outerbridge with his Command Performance and Edward Steichen with "Early Years" retrospective. Indeed interesting the work of John Delaney ( Golden Eagle Hunters of Mongolia ) and Mark Edward Harris with his work on North Korea.
Here a note from the official web site :
In April 2009, the inaugural Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA) will showcase the enormous photography community, inclusive of commercial, fine art and photojournalism. As the second largest photography community in the United States, Los Angeles will provide a distinctive backdrop to the celebration of the photographic image.
MOPLA was established and exists to advance the celebration of Photography, through a variety of events and programs designed to inspire and invigorate the photography professional, enthusiast, emerging professional and collector.
MOPLA's two-fold mission is to advance dynamic programming designed to engage and stimulate the photography community, as well as to present a comprehensive resource of exhibitions and events in April 2009.
