An Evening with Photographer Frank Ockenfels 3

FO3_FB_event© Frank Ockenfels 3

APA San Diego and MOPA are proud to welcome acclaimed photographer and director, Frank Ockenfels 3. Join us for a special one-night event including a photographic talk and slide presentation about his new book, Volume 3 at the Museum of Photographic Arts in the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Theater.

Frank Ockenfels 3 is an American photographer, artist, and director based in Los Angeles, California. He is renowned for his portraiture and incorporating non-photographic elements in his work. Ockenfels applies techniques like collage, painting, and drawing to his photographs. His career began working for magazines such as Rolling Stone, Spin, Vanity Fair, New York Magazine, and Vogue. He photographed over 200 album covers for various musicians. Additionally, he has created countless campaigns for major television and movie clients. Other advertising clients include Nike, K Swiss, Reebok, and Hennessy. Frank Ockenfels 3’s work has been in demand for over three decades.

Frank’s ability to adapt to any situation as well as staying away from the obvious seem to be qualities that set him apart from other photographers. Frank thrives on pushing the boundaries of digital photography and believes in collaborating. In many ways Frank is unconventional. He believes that photography can still have moments of purity without being overly conceptualized or retouched.

Frank recently published his first book entitled, Volume 3. This book provides a window into his visual thinking-the internal world of imagery and emotions in his mind. Subjected to ink, collage, or paint, the images are no longer just photographs of an individual, but become a more personal statement of who the artist is, of his psyche and as such, creative artistry in its purest form. The erotic, the sublime, and the violent collages are blended with portraiture that seamlessly complements each other. The photographic creations become tactile, bringing another dimension of sensory experience.
