DAX Gallery hosts the third installment of a traveling series of photographs from father and son, Eriberto and Estevan Oriol on May 17th, 2014. A book signing with the artists will be held from 3:00pm-6:00pm, with the exhibit opening from 6:00pm-10:00pm.
Like Father, Like Son is a retrospective survey of works by renowned Los Angeles-based father and son photographers. The popup exhibition for Eriberto and Estevan Oriol at DAX Gallery in Costa Mesa, CA is the third installment of a traveling series of photographs, displaying the duo’s gritty and raw viewpoint of lifestyles from the streets of Los Angeles. This will mark the Oriol’s second showing of their work side by side on the West Coast which first began in L.A. and has made it’s way to New York and now, Orange County. Estevan and Eriberto are often seen as two of the most important documentarians of Latino and hip-hop culture. Oriol’s photography captures the authenticity of L.A. urban life through their lens. Like Father, Like Son shows the elegance of struggle in the poor communities of L.A. that might otherwise have gone unnoticed if it were not for the two long-time observers of city life.
On May 22nd from 6:00pm-8:00pm, DAX Gallery will host an evening lecture with Estevan Oriol for an intimate discussion of his work, passions and future in photography. Local colleges, high schools and photography enthusiasts are encouraged to come listen to one of L.A.’s most influential photographers.
The conclusion of the show will be held on June 8th from 10:00am-3:00pm with a car show, book signing and BBQ with the artists themselves.
