Fresh Focus 2017

City Hearts is excited to announce that the 2017 Fresh Focus Photography Auction will take place at the

Leica Gallery in Hollywood

in the Spring of 2017!

In the mean time, please enjoy these images and video from our 2015 event.

Fresh Focus 2015 paid tribute to Mary Ellen Mark, with a 1/1 shot by Stefani Kong Uhler of Mark and Marlon Brando on the set of Apocalypse Now. Images of David Hockney, Frank Zappa, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Joni Mitchell and Marilyn Monroe, as well as a very special Duke Ellington, are among the donated works. In addition, photographers who have exhibited at The Getty, de Young, LACMA and The Leica Gallery, as well as high profile celebrity photographers, and several award-winning members of the American Society of Cinematographers came out to support City Hearts.
