Interloper at the movies

Painter-photographer Robert Cumming began photographing movie premieres and award shows early in the 1970s. He was a recent L.A. transplant who had just spent time photographing palm trees and motor homes, among other cliches. He went to the Music Center for the Oscars a few times, and took charmingly loose shots of Cher, Mae West and Barbra Streisand at the premiere of Last Tango in Paris. Because he took these images with color slide film, they've rarely been seen. But he's used digital printing to put together a show of midsized images at Jancar Gallery. There's a feeling of raw curiosity about these shots that makes them worth seeing. 961 Chung King Road, Chinatown; through Nov. 23. (213) 259-3770, jancargallery.com.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Oct. 26. Continues through Nov. 23, 2013
