Candace Biggerstaff
WIPI Photo LA 2013 Curator:

Candace Biggerstaff was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California, as the youngest of five children. Upon receiving a used Aries rangefinder camera on her thirteenth birthday, her passion for photography was born.

When Candace turned 20 she decided to join Circus Vargas with her soon to be husband, and traveled the country with the circus from city to city for almost 2 years. She has always been intrigued and fascinated by the circus and all of its intricacies, which she has portrayed in various ways through her photography.

“My world is seen as a series of photographs. Growing up, my favorite magazine was LIFE. My favorite book was, The Family of Man, having no idea that the incredible Edward Steichen was the photographer. For me the images were an escape from reality, with reality.”

Callie Biggerstaff, a native to Los Angeles, CA, has been a freelance photographer for over 5 years She has studied photography at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena as well as The Julia Dean Photo Workshops. Callie began shooting professionally after discovering a great passion for imagery during her work as a photo editor in print advertising and graphic design. Callie's earlier images had focused on the documentary of Americana, and its shifts and changes. Her images offer a blunt reality while still allowing the intensity, mystery, and beauty that can be seen in each exploration and journey, capturing a moment and evoking emotion. Her recent focus has exploded in the way of live music and the culture surrounding the underground resurgence of Downtown Los Angeles. She is aiming to capture the raw pleasure and passions that Angelenos are rediscovering in these ongoing times of economic and political struggle.

A Mother’s World, 11 x 14" bamboo

Barbara Pickles is a fine art and commercial photographer in Southern California. After studying art at Wellesley College she became a photographer, art director and commercial producer in Los Angeles. Completing her MFA studies in photography in 2010 at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, Pickles continues to develop her photographic career. In this body of work as an American woman, wife, and mother of three boys, Pickles worked to convey her personal reality within the family. This process constantly brought her back to the dining room table. Yet, in all the images the artist was absent. Ultimately she stepped in front of the camera, and through pose and gesture found a language to communicate her emotional experiences as an American woman, wife, and mother. This is excerpt from a body of 13 images.

Maureen Haldeman

Silver Lining, 2013, 11 x 14" bamboo

Maureen Haldeman has for over 20 years, photographed a wide range of subject matter spanning all realms of nature as well as the urban landscape: whether dramatic shadows cast by a late day sun or patterns produced by simple objects, representational or abstract, her photographs are acutely conscious of light, shadow and the beauty of nature: whether a moody seascape or a still life, her images impart a painterly quality. “My photographs are interpretations of how I see the world rather than a mirror image of it; unconcerned with depiction of detail, I focus on the total effect of texture, color and light to capture the essence of a scene, often creating a slightly off-balance view of reality. ”Maureen’s photographs are exhibited at various Los Angeles galleries and many are in private collections. She has taught photography at the college level and previously owned MJH Photography in Malibu, Ca., specializing in portraiture. She is currently working on a series of images of Old Havana taken on a recent trip to Cuba.

Diane Silverman

Best Friends Forever  2011, 11 x 14" bamboo

As a visual artist, psychoanalyst and art psychotherapist, Diane Silverman has always been focused on the internal world of emotions, the unconscious mind, dreams and fantasies. The primary focus of both her artistic and professional career has been the exploration of this internal terrain, and in the facilitation and both the visual and verbal expression of these less accessible and hidden strata of the mind. Her principal photographic projects have included portraiture, both of herself and others. Often this has taken the form of either actual images of her subjects, or metaphorical and symbolic portraits through the creation of still life assemblages that she photographs. She is more interested in interpretation than in producing faithful representations of the concrete world around her. Diane’s photographic experience spans more than 30 years. She has been the recipient of several awards and publications, and has exhibited her work in group shows in Los Angeles, New York and San Diego. She still uses film exclusively, and will probably continue to do so.


Diane Cockerill


Chance of Showers   2012, 11 x 14" bamboo

Diane Cockerill is a third-generation Angeleno whose love of Los Angeles impacts her photography, from the macro of the downtown skyline to the micro of street curbs. Constantly seeking new images and locations, she takes the usual and offers it up with unusual perspective and sensibility.  Diane studied Fine Art at UCLA and has shown work at several local galleries, including a juried competition last December at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art. Her photograph, "City Hall", was chosen to be part of The Los Angeles Collection exhibition at Duncan Miller Gallery in 2011 as well as the Pink Art Fair in Seoul, Korea. Touring America Magazine and Southern California Women's Caucus for Art's "Women Around Town" have highlighted her work. Diane's street art persona was the topic of a recent article on Huffington Post.




Jane Olin

Site/Sight Unseen No. 1, 2012, 11 x 14" bamboo

Jane Olin’s passion for Photography began over 20 years ago. Experimentation and pushing photographic boundaries, both in the darkroom and while making images, are central to her work. Working in Series allows for a deeper interpretation of her subject while simultaneously allowing a deeper examination of her own psyche. She works with film experimenting with pinhole, Holga and conventional cameras. Her creative expression in her darkroom varies from toned silver images, cyanotype and process photography. She’s exhibited throughout the United States and Europe and has won numerous awards. Her Studio is located in Carmel Valley, California.

Her second photographic book, LOVE, LOSS, AND LAUGHTER: SEEING ALZHEIMER’S DIFFERENTLY, was published in March 2012.

The Australia Alzheimer’s Association will tour the exhibit through 7 states beginning in May 2013. The photograph of “Jacqueline laughing” is from this project.
