Biographical/historical: Bruce Bisenz began attending flamenco performances at the Fountain Theatre in Los Angeles as a fan of the musical style. In 2005, he started photographing these performances, creating and editing the images as a means of assisting the musicians and dancers in documenting their careers. In 2011, Bisenz was narrator of the documentary, Kumpanía: Flamenco Los Angeles, which focuses on a group of Los Angeles-based dancers, guitarists, and singers devoted to preserving the traditional flamenco art form.
Content: The collection dates from 2005 to 2015 and is comprised of digital photographs of eighty-three different flamenco artists performing live in Southern California, and fifteen electronic promotional posters designed by Bisenz. The photographs are all candid shots that utilize natural lighting, refrain from the use of a flash, and depict the performers as they appeared to the audience. Many of the photographs have been edited by Bisenz to include added text and graphics.
