FOREWARD

 

Array is a collective book of local photographers. For each issue, eleven contributors are given one word as the theme. With a combination of eleven different interpretations of those two themes, Array hopes to explore the relationship between subjects and the act of photography.

Array is funded through book sales of past issues, and crowd sourcing/design service trades by Rachel Bagan of Play Grnd.  The publication aims to eventually be fully self supporting through book sales, making it a true publication in which artists support other artists.

Array is organized and designed by Play Grnd, a firm established by Rachel Bagan and U. Alexander Lopez. Producing the book in house, from the selection of photographers to supervising its printing process, we look forward to seeing where Array takes our team and its contributors in the future.

ARIN DUMAUA

I’ve been shooting film photography for about 2 years now. Being heavily influenced by skateboarding, hip-hop, and graffiti culture, I slowly made my way of learning and creating my own style of photos. I mostly enjoy Street Photography because you just never know what you might capture when roaming around the city of Los Angeles. Some of my favorite photographers are Boogie, Chi Modu, Atiba Jefferson, Ed Templeton, and Greg Hunt, just to name a few.

S. ELLE QUINTANA

Los Angeles based photographer S.Elle Quintana grew up in The Suburbs of Los Angeles, finding inspiration in the romantic drives through Laurel Canyon to and her favorite book store, Book Soup, an LA institution where she would find the hallucinatory writings of Aldous Huxley and the foundational philosophies of Roland Barthes. These books were the basis of her constant pursuit of an image that bordered reality and fantasy. She is always carrying a 35mm in hand, looking for the magic of the everyday.

RYUJI MORITA

I have always been a music lover/maker as far as I remember, but in 2017, I picked up a camera out of curiosity and started taking pictures. I fell in love with it immediately and it's been my passion for over a year now. I like photography because it gives me opportunities to meet new people, explore diferent places, also channel my creativity through images when I do conceptual portraits.
