PHOTOGRAPHER & AWARD-WINNING FILMMAKER, ARLENE BOGNA‘S SAFARI AMERICANA: SCENES OF DELIGHT PHOTOGRAPHS FIRST SOLO EXHIBIT AT GALLERY 825 IN WEST HOLLYWOOD ON SATURDAY, JUNE 21, 2008 6PM – 9PM

Hollywood, CA Photographer & Award-winning Filmmaker, Arlene Bogna’s Safari Americana: Scenes of Delight first solo photographic exhibit to be held at Gallery 825 on Saturday, June 21, 2008 from 6pm – 9pm featuring large, special edition color photographs. Bogna’s raw analog photographic exhibit explores our relationship with animals and our need for them in a whimsical, yet thoughtful fashion.

“Part social commentary about [the] role of animals in contemporary culture and part multi-media burlesque – Arlene Bogna’s Safari Americana: Scenes of Delight delights its audience with a myriad of narratives and constructs, all in service of a provocative yet successful formalism,” says Executive Director Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA) / Gallery 825, Peter Mays.

“In Safari Americana: Scenes of Delight, I wanted to explore this instinct of ours, a strange impulse to connect with, or show dominion over, our fictitious animal friends,” says Photographer, Arlene Bogna. “I created these photographs using toy cameras with experimental techniques, including cross-processing, light leaks, pushed colors, expired film, and custom printing to capture my memories with a sense of play and discovery.”

An award-winning Writer/Director and Photographer, Bogna has received two KidsFirst! Awards for her screenplay, Earth Kids, and a Telly, Platinum Best of Show Aurora, Davey, and Remi, for her narrative PSA, Canvas, she created for the art non-profit, A Window Between Worlds. Bogna’s art and film background includes fine art classes in color, composition, painting and drawing at The Art Center and Otis Parsons, film and media at the Universita di Bologna, Italy, culminating in a Film and Italian Literature degree from UCLA. She continues to expand upon her art education. For more information, go to www.arlenebognafineart.com.
