Resource comprises a video recording of oral history interviews conducted by the USC Fisher Museum of Art (University of Southern California) in relation to their 2012 exhibition, "Sight Specific: LACPS and the Politics of Community." The exhibition explored the role that the Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies (LACPS) played in fostering the photographic community in Los Angeles in the late 1970s and early 1980s. According to promotional material released at the time of the exhibition, the aim of the exhibition was to contextualize "the personalities, programs, and impact of the Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies by reconstructing selections from the organization's exhibitions from 1974 to 1985." It went on to say that "Sight Specific" explored "how LACPS as an organization attempted to frame the discussion of contemporary issues surrounding photographic practice, and ultimately, how the organization set the stage for the future of image-making within and beyond Southern California."
The exhibition and related interviews were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., a city-wide project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles. The video recording captures interviews with persons actively involved with LACPS: Suda House, former president; Robert Glenn Ketchum, former president; Sheila Pinkel, organizer; Deborah Irmas, curator; and Howard Spector, former director. Additional information on this exhibition can be found on the PST website at
The recording exists solely in digital format (resource was transferred to the Archives on an optical disc). The disc acts as an archival master and is therefore restricted. Resource is open to researchers and is available online.
