Lou Stoumen's New York - From the Permanent Collection of MOPA

dnj Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibitions, from the Permanent Collection of the Museum of Photographic Arts, “Lou Stoumen’s New York.“

The Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) will exhibit the photographs of Louis C. Stoumen (American, 1917-1991), in the Collection Room. In 1992, MOPA received these archives, which hold all of Stoumen's photographs, films, publications and professional documents. He was an accomplished writer, photographer and filmmaker, publishing ten photography books and earning two Academy Awards for his film productions during a career that spanned more than four decades. He was well known for the deliberate use of text in his images to imply narrative and context and coined “Paper Movie” to describe his publications of photography and words. Stoumen taught at UCLA Film School for two decades before retiring to Sebastopol, CA.
