Interviews with Fine Art Photographer, Olivier Pojzman and Shannon Patton, Gallery Director, the KONA Gallery and Photojournalism Center.
On April 23rd, KONA Gallery debuted Pojzman’s ROUTE 66: Menage a Trois. The exhibit came about from Pojzman’s love of the open road, especially the iconic highway that stretches 2,400 miles, connecting eight American states. Pojzman’s keen eye has captured the quirkiness of many forgotten roadside beauties, combining snapshots to create idyllic photographic mementos. It’s a series of limited edition photographic giclees printed on canvas, in triptych form. Individual units can be mixed and exchanged, thus forming new Ménage à Trois’s.
OLIVIER POJZMAN and IRISWORK– Trained in art and desig, originally from Paris, Pojzman came to America 15 plus years ago. He has spent his earlier career shooting celebrities and the elite for ZUMA thus, creating his high-profile commercial portfolio.
THE KONA GALLERYAND PHOTOJOURNALISM CENTER––Unveiled on October 7, 2009 by photojournalist and entrepreneur, Scott Mc Kiernan, The KONA Gallery is a space dedicated to the presentation and discourse of photojournalism.

Pojzman’s photographs are printed on canvas, giving them a painting-esque quality.
He started doing fine art photography about six years ago and participating in the art show
was a way for him to share.
“(The art show is held in a) beautiful location,” he said.
“People can spend the day walking around, have lunch, listen to music and look at different types of art, photography, painting and sculptures. I think the quality of the show is very good, it’s one of the best.”
Pojzman said he photographs a lot of scenery and is inspired by wide-open spaces and iconic movies. He will be located at booth 401, in between Rexford and Crescent Drive on Santa Monica. For more information on his art, visit www.iriswork.com.

One more week before the closing of the exhibition. November 18, 2010
Meet Olivier Pojzman, a fine art photographer, whose large panoramas have a way of turning a wall into a window to another place and time. The perspective is actually greater than the human eye is capable of producing, which means in order to understand the art, the mind places itself inside the scene. Olivier’s work is on display at the Arclight Hollywood until November 18th, or you can check out www.IrisWork.com to find out more about his galleries.
Oliver was featured on French Television showcasing his current exhibit at the ArcLight Cinema in Hollywood.

More than 30 pieces will be on display throughout the famous cinema beginning October 1st and ending November 18th. Anyone can visit the gallery, no purchase necessary.
Pojzman has developed a signature method and presentation for panoramic photography that extends beyond the eye’s capability and challenges our understanding of a place and time.

Olivier Pojzman, featured artist. ”It’s so important to me and any artist to have a way to share our art. To me it’s sharing a beautiful moment – sharing an experience – and hopefully it is uplifting and it resonates with something in you… almost like going back in time or exploring another era. I think this exhibit at the Arclight does a great job of reminding people that art can be approachable and meaningful at the same time.”
Erik Oberholtzer, Tender Greens – “We like to get involved in the life of the neighborhood. To us it’s important to support the artists, the events, and the everyday life here. The Arclight is a big part of Hollywood life and we think it’s great to support great art along with the Arclight and Bodega.”
Greg Seares, Bodega Wine Bar – “We chose this specific location in Hollywood for the opportunity to be a part of events like this. Fun, interesting chances to support the community and partner with quality businesses like Tender Greens and the Arclight.”

“When you buy your first piece of art it’s exciting. It makes you feel good. Art is one of the best mediums to bring people together. It’s almost like a nice bottle of wine, you want to share it and talk about it.”

On en a rêvé, Olivier l’a fait. Ce Français installé en Californie, qui a étudié l’art et le design à Paris, réalise la synthèse parfaite entre la photographie et la peinture. Photographe de profession, son goût pour les grands panoramas s’est logiquement développé au gré de ses voyages de par le monde, nombreux, et de son installation au coeur de l’immense espace américain.
Inspiré par les Hockney, Turner ou Hopper, le passage aux grands formats et à la fusion entre la photo et la peinture s’est imposé à Olivier Pojzman. “L’échelle de ce pays (les Etats-Unis) est incroyable, dit-il. Je pense que le format doublement dimensionnel que j’ai développé traduit parfaitement son immensité et sa beauté”.

“I recommend the work of Olivier Pojzman, whom Californian panoramics, all printed on canvas, remind us of the great American masters – David Hockney and Edward Hopper. One also notices the influence of hyperrealism. Olivier was exhibiting until April 30 in the heart of downtown, along with five other French artists.”

C’est à travers l’objectif de son appareil qu’Olivier Pojzman, lui, a cherché à exprimer son « ailleurs ». Ce Français, installé depuis quinze ans à Los Angeles, présente à la Continental Gallery des photographies panoramiques de presque deux mètres de long ou de haut. Un format idéal pour capturer l’immensité des paysages américains. Plages californiennes à perte de vue ou encore déserts arides de l’Ouest, ses images sont à mi-chemin entre la peinture murale et la photographie. Notamment parce qu’elles ont la particularité d’être imprimées sur des rouleaux de toile en coton. « Mes photos ont le format d’un écran de cinéma ; elles sont comme une fenêtre s’ouvrant sur le paysage »

Article in Studio Photography Magazine, by Alysha Sideman
There is nothing boring about Olivier Pojzman.
For one thing, he’s French. There’s something exotic about a photographer with Parisian roots. Next, Pojzman doesn’t like pretty. A sunny California sky doesn’t turn him on. What does? A cloudy one — preferably with a hanging gray overcast sky that’s about to open up and drench us all.
