FANFARE–LA was established to promote serious art by both established and emerging photographers working in fine art nude, fetish subject matter, and sexually charged ideas that engage and provoke the viewer while overlapping fashion, erotica, and commentary concerning human sexuality. Often neglected in the fine art world because of the controversy inherent in confronting sexuality directly, erotically charged fine art photography nevertheless has a rich history in the Los Angeles region, which has served as the backdrop for such legendary photographers as Helmut Newton and Herb Ritts, as well as more recent artists like Steve Diet Goedde. Southern California remains a primary source for provocative contemporary culture, from the sophisticated to the unrefined. One person's art may be another person's pornography, and we aren't here to make that distinction but to exhibit photographers who make art that challenges and arouses.
