    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. 

    You can see why we love Michael so much here: http://www.michaeljang.com/index.html

    International Open Call for Submissions
    Deadline: 8 September 2014
    The Photocopy Club, in partnership with Brighton Photo Biennial and the Joburg Photo umbrella, invite photographers of all ages and abilities to join them for a giant collective making to be exhibited during BPB14 and one month later, during Joburg Photo.
    This project will bring international photographers and local communities together, making photography in print affordable and accessible to people from all different walks of life.
    All Photocopy Club exhibitions are based on photographers submitting their work printed via the use of a black and white photocopier/xerox machine.
    For Photocopy Club exhibitions to be shown during BPB14 and Joburg Photo, photographers around the world are asked  to form collectives with their friends, family and peers and submit on the theme of community.
    Matt Martin from The photocopy club explains,
    ‘We want you to come up with a collective name and make individual or a group images that work around the theme of community. For example: Music, Religion, sport, art, sex, politics….. think about the city you live in and what communities live within it.’
    Zine Workshops and Exchange
    From the submissions, a handful of our favourite UK collectives will be invited to a group zine making workshop. Resulting zines will be exhibited in Johannesburg and swapped with another group of collectives working on communities in South Africa.
    Rules
    • Collectives must number between 3 and 10 members.
    • Submissions must be printed in black and white using a photocopier/xerox machine with a minimum paper size of  A4 (12x8in) .
    • All submissions must be signed, dated on the back and show the collective’s name on the front.
    • 2 copies of each submission must be made. One copy for BPB and other for Joburg Photo. These will then be separated and delivered to the exhibition spaces. 
    • All submissions must be sent via post or by hand to The Photocopy Club or Joburg Photo offices. No electronic submissions will be considered.
    • All image rights stay with the photographer but once submitted you consent to the work being exhibited and your images being used for press. All work sent will also be available for the public to purchase for a small donation, with the money made going towards the support of the zine workshops and a split zine of the joint exhibitions.
    • Any work not sold will go into the photocopy club archive and may be used at future photocopy club exhibition.
