Stunning images of the Los Angeles area Station Fire have been circulating for weeks now online and in newspapers, as area residents and professional photographers alike seek to capture the drama of the blaze that has devistated homes and even taken the lives of brave firefighters here in Southern California.

A lot of us photo enthusiasts in the greater Los Angeles area have been standing by, with building anticipation, for the long awaited Annenberg Space for Photography to finally open its doors. According to the Los Angeles Times Culture Monster blog, the Century City space will finally open on March 27th with an exhibition entitled L8S ANG3LES. Apparently the “8″ refernces the number of LA photographers whose work is included in the show (BIG NAMES!), and the “3″ is for the number of LA Times photographers whose images of LA will also be exhibited.
From the Times:
The inaugural show will spotlight Los Angeles photographers who work in various fields, including fine art photography, documentary projects, architecture, fashion and celebrity portraiture. Images by John Baldessari, Catherine Opie, Greg Gorman, Douglas Kirkland, Tim Street-Porter, Julius Shulman, Lauren Greenfield and Carolyn Cole, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Times photographer, will be shown in the traditional gallery. Lawrence K. Ho, Genaro Molina and Kirk McKoy are the Times staffers to be featured in the projection space.
