REN Gallery, 743 Santee St unit b, Los Angeles, CA 90014, USA


Per Bernal is a Swedish-born, LA-based photographer whose lens has captured and transformed the dedication and discipline of physique and fitness athletes into art. “Faces of Leica” is centered around exploring the artists behind the art, and represents a new era of his career focused on portraiture. “Leica has always been synonymous with joy and discovery to me. As a photographer, I can understand the vulnerability of having the camera turned around on yourself. It was always my goal to make each artist feel comfortable in front of my lens. As I captured them, we exchanged experiences of our craft, creating an environment of familiarity and trust. In my portraits of my fellow photographers, I became a mirror that showed them how truly special and talented they are." THE FACES OF LEICA LA
