Johnny Le (b.1987 Stockton, California) is a multimedia documentarian and curator. Raised in the Northwest, he received his BA in Digital Film and Video at the Art Institute of Portland. He is living and working in Los Angeles.
Le works in capturing an ongoing photography montage creating in-between sceneries and portraiture, imbuing a relational candidness with unknown-to-established artists, musicians, and icons. Le extends the photographic rapport formed with his subjects through an experimental curatorial practice, where he builds upon collaboration to present thematic art exhibitions and cultural programming bridging the divergent communities of the art world, entertainment, fashion, gastronomy, music, and the use of unorthodox exhibition spaces.
In 2013, he founded Galerie Hideout, a migratory gallery exploring the ephemeral ethos of curiosity, chance encounters, and travel. Galerie Hideout has organized exhibitions in Portland, OR, Los Angeles, and Paris.
