The American Society of Cinematographers opened its first exhibition still photography by members on March 18, with the historic Clubhouse in Hollywood serving as their ASC Gallery.

Each photographer offered five images, following a loose theme of portraiture, presenting a tremendous diversity in styles and subjects in images that were shot over the past 40 years.

Most of the ASC members exhibiting in the showcase were in attendance, welcoming an array of other Society members as well as an avid audience of art afficcionados. Here are a few select images from the evening:
