PasadenaPhotographyArts FORUM
Cindy Olnick: “L.A. Landmarks: Lost and Almost Lost”

How do you use images to tell the stories of beloved landmarks we’ve lost or almost lost? How do you pick 30 photos out of 14,000? Cindy Olnick, board member of LAPL Photo Friends, shares her approach to mining the library’s vast photo archive to create a compelling book and exhibit.

Cindy Olnick is the former communications director for the Los Angeles Conservancy, where she oversaw the use of images to convey the value of historic places. She’s also on the board of Photo Friends of the Los Angeles Public Library (photofriends.org), a nonprofit that promotes the library’s extraordinary photo collection—millions of images that tell the stories of this great city and its people (photos.lapl.org).

Seating at the Armory Center for the Arts is limited and RSVP early arrival is recommended!
