THE PHOTOCOPY CLUB SOLO SERIES
"Well, It’s all over now" by Michael Jang
18/9/14 6.30 till 10pm - Doomed Gallery, London
We are super excited to announce the first in the series of TPC solo exhibitions. We start of with an all time favorite of ours, Mr Michael Jang from San Francisco. -
Michael Jang’s is a unique story. For the last forty years, he has earned a living as a portrait photographer, capturing iconic figures such as Jimi Hendrix, Ronald Reagan, and Robin Williams, among others. However, this unassuming Asian-American photographer has also been simultaneously infiltrating and documenting a number of groups and subcultures from all strata of society: from celebrity parties in Beverly Hills to the youth of Castro’s Cuba, from South City gangs to Old West rodeos, and from the punk rock scene of the late 70s to the teenage garage bands of early 2000s San Francisco. His images are allegories of particular points in time, characterized by their candid honesty, decisiveness, and vivacity. SFMoMA has recently acquired a number of his early prints and has exhibited them alongside contemporaries such as Garry Winogrand, Diane Arbus, and Lee Friedlander.
This exhibition will feature 20 photographs, curated by Michael and the photocopy club. They have been printed as A1 sized black and white xerox prints by Michael and are signed, dated and in edition of 1 solo series print. They will also be an exhibition zine published by The photocopy club that will be released on the night. All works will be for sale.
