The official start of the mad, mad art fair season is upon us, as photo l.a. returns to the Barker Hangar for a new edition foregrounding the brilliance of the photographic medium in showing our world back to us. With far too much exhibitor, panelist, screener, docent tour and honors-giving highlights to list here, notable points throughout the weekend include opening night’s Venice Arts benefit, featured acclaim for legendary L.A. lensman Anthony Hernandez, 70+ exhibitors, publishers, special installations, competitions, and most importantly its international, stylistically inclusive, vintage, contemporary, and photojournalistic content that can turn even the most casual Instagrammer into an educated aficionado — and collector! — in just one weekend.

Barker Hangar, 3021 Airport Ave., Santa Monica; opening night, Thu., Jan. 30, 6-9 p.m.; fair hours: Fri.-Sat., Jan. 31-Feb. 1, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 2, 11a.m.-5 p.m.; $20/day, $30/weekend pass, $100/opening night benefit. photola.com.
