Exhibition: Three Boys From Pasadena @ Art Center College of Design with Mark Arbeit, George Holz and Just Loomis

Three Boys From Pasadena @ Art Center College of Design

Finally had a chance to check out the Three Boys from Pasadena exhibit up at the Williamson Gallery in the Art Center College of Design, really glad I did. Tremendous display of Helmut Newton’s direct influence (his overall presence is already felt in pretty much every modern fashion image you’ve seen) with photography from three of his assistants; Mark Arbeit, George Holz and Just Loomis. All three photographers have their own distinct eye, as well, plus a stunning display of rich life-sized prints (what life was like before digital, kids) makes this one worth the drive. It’s still up now, through August twenty-sixth, very mature exhibit, much respect. Sexy stuff, exhibit is not for kids, and photos here are not for work.
