ArcLight Culver City presents ‘Freeze Frame: The Beauty Within’. An exhibition of black and white and colour photographs by Monique Lai.
After living overseas for a few years Lai returns to ArcLight with a body of work titled, ‘Freeze Frame: The Beauty Within.’ Coinciding with the Asian World Film Festival, viewers get to see uninterrupted scenes taken randomly and by pure chance. Her visual diary of street photography includes images shot while in a moving vehicle and at waist level. Filmmaker Monique Lai says, “I saw stories in front of me, and without looking thru the viewfinder, I had to trust that I got it.”
Born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Lai’s work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Provincetown, New York, and Beijing.
