Widely published in outlets including Life Magazine, New York Magazine, Paris Match and Newsweek, Henri Dauman may be the most famous photographer you've never have heard of. A feature documentary is in the works on his 40-year career capturing cinematic, intimate images of celebrities, artists, world leaders, ordinary citizens and significant historical events. Yet somehow his current exhibition at KP Projects/Merry Karnowsky Gallery is his first solo exhibition in the United States.
See a preview of his works in our slideshow, read more about Dauman here, and then head over to the gallery to see the rest. But hurry, they're only up through Saturday, May 12.
KP Projects Gallery, 170 S. La Brea Ave., Hancock Park; (323) 933-4408, kpprojects.net. Tue.-Sat., noon-6 p.m., through Sat., May 12. Free.
