dnj Gallery is a vintage and contemporary photography gallery located in Santa Monica's Bergamot Station. The gallery opened its doors in October 2007 with the exhibition, 'The Seventies Revisited,' which included the work of several important Los Angeles photographers including Eileen Cowin, Darryl Curran, and Jane O'Neal. Each of these artists defied the common conventions of photography through their innovative use of materials, contemporary subject matter, and experimental techniques. In the following two years, dnj has remained dedicated to presenting a select roster of emerging and mid-career artists who similarly embrace and expand the boundaries of the photographic medium.
Many dnj exhibitions have received critical acclaim in the Los Angeles Times; Favorable reviews have been published for recent exhibitions of Suzy Poling and Cynthia Greig, Joe Goode, “Contemporary Photography from China,” Jona Frank, Holly Andres, Dylan Vitone, Carlos & Jason Sanchez and Michael Eastman, and other publications including L.A. Weekly, Angeleno, Lifestyle magazine, Forth Magazine, The Toronto Sun, and ArtScene and Art Ltd. have generously covered dnj Gallery exhibitions. dnj Gallery owner, Pamela Mayers-Schoenberg, was also featured in Photograph Magazine.
