“Picture House” Photography By Steven Rood
“My name is Steven Rood. I am a Los Angeles based fine art photographer. My work is well collected. Pieces now hang in many private and corporate collections.
I am a year into my current project entitled Picture House. An homage to classic and vintage movie theaters. A retrospective that started locally and is quickly gathering steam to become a nationwide project. Currently, over 50 theaters have been shot. 27 of these are now represented online, with many more to be added soon. These images are receiving a lot of attention from the entertainment community, the photographic community and theater preservationist groups.
And that is why I in turn bring them to your attention. America’s classic and vintage movie theaters are vanishing at an alarming rate. Structures that represent a more innocent time in
our country. And as they fade, so do our memories of a time before urban and spiritual decay.
It is my hope that these images will receive enough attention so as to attract additional funding for this project. The eventual goal is a traveling gallery show and fine art book with a
percentage of the proceeds donated to various preservationist groups in need.
My photography is my voice. A voice that I am able to use to bring attention to issues of importance. And it is my hope that you can help make it heard. So any coverage of the Picture House project would be greatly appreciated. I thank you for your time and consideration."
