ABOUT THE SHOW:
Themed FILM NOIr, The show is comprised of a group OF images from 12 photographers - all of which were captured during one of the weekly GPG events.  The images celebrate the classic cinematic genre film noir by reveling in the prototypical hardboiled themes, low-key look and cynical feel that were so prominent in the crime dramas of the 40's and 50's. The opening reception on April 13th will be hosted in the gorgeous hotel andaluz mezzanine.  the images will hang through may 5th.  For more information about Guerrilla Photo Group, or to be updated about future shows, please visit us at www.guerrillaphotogroup.com, on facebook @/guerrillaphotogroup or follow us on twitter @GPGabq.

WHAT IS GUERRILLA PHOTO GROUP?
Guerrilla Photo Group (GPG) is a FREE weekly creative collaborative focused on making photographic art in a social, fun and safe environment.  Founded in 2006 by Albuquerque-based commercial photographer Rip Williams, the group is comprised of dozens of Photographers, Models, Make-Up Artists, Hair Stylists and Fashion Designers of all skill levels - from highly acclaimed working professionals to people just getting started.  The group provides each participant with the opportunity to learn new skills, teach others, and engage in a synergistic (often organic) educational/social environment.  Although GPG has some aspects of a seminar, looks like a social mixer and happens regularly like a class, it's none of the above - it's truly a creative playground for grown-ups. The basic premise is this:  if you throw total "noobs" and working pros into a studio-shaped blender once a week... giving them all full access to professional gear as well as each other's respective creativity, passion and expertise... out the other end comes fantastic photography.  In an ongoing effort to provide the best independent, free, adult-oriented educational experience possible, GPG's Advisory Board and a dedicated group of volunteers have worked diligently to develop partnerships with local businesses, as well as negotiate numerous sponsorships with national photography related companies.  the group, through its art director, shawna cory, produces six art shows annually including five themed shows and one annual gala where we recognize our photographer/model  of the year and display the "best in show" images from the five previous events.  additionally, GPG is very proud to be voted "Albuquerque's Best Arts Event" by the readers of the Alibi for three years running (2010, 2011 & 2012.)
