Hollywood, CA Photographer & Award-winning
Bogna's Safari Americana: Scenes of Delight
first solo photographic exhibit to be held at Gallery 825 from
June 21 - July 18, 2008 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.
“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' (co-written
with Nicole Schubert), and a Telly, Platinum Best of Show Aurora,
Davey, and Remi, for her narrative PSA "Canvas" which
she created for the art non-profit, A
Window Between Worlds, produced by Women
In Film. 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.
