From the earliest 19th century photographic experiments to the latest 21st century photo-based works, Photo LA will pack the Barker Hangar with images from 70 of the top galleries and private dealers from around the world. The three-day celebration of all things photographic also features lectures with Catherine Opie (1 p.m., Sun.; at the Ruskin Group Theater adjacent to the fair, 3000 Airport Ave.) known for her vibrant portraiture and Joel-Peter Witkin (11 a.m., Sun.) known for his baroque surrealism. On Saturday afternoon, Charlotte Cotton, the curator of LACMA’s photography department, will speak with several prominent shooters including Bruce Davidson (shown above), Diane Keaton and Marvin Heiferman, who will discuss and sign their new publications.
