Witness the revolutionary stories of courage and strength that redefined the social structure of America in a visual series captured by photographers Jim Marshall, Bil Brown & Mynxii White at Leica Gallery Los Angeles from June 28 through August 6.
JIM MARSHALL: "PEACE"
Jim Marshall’s unseen “peace” photographs, collated and published here for the first time are a timely document for our world today. 60 years after the creation of the CND peace symbol, this body of work is a beautiful and thoughtful reflection from one of the most celebrated photographers of the twentieth century. Renowned street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey provides the book’s foreword. Afterword by Joan Baez and text by Peter Doggett.
Marshall saw himself as an anthropologist and a journalist, visually recording the changing times and explosion of creativity and celebrity in the 1960s. He loved street photography, and in between official assignments, started documenting the CND peace symbol and peace rallies as a personal project. He tabled these images on an index card in his archives labeled “Peace,” where they remained until now.
BIL BROWN: "FROM PROTEST TO PERFORMANCE: NEW WORK 2016-2018"
Portrait, fashion editorial and art photographer, director and publisher of Black & Grey magazine, Bil Brown covers the period right before the unprecedented election of an American President that has been plagued by controversy, and the year after his inauguration. Using current history and inspired by historical movements of the past, both his art directed editorial work and his stylized reportage-like imagery tell us a story of disapproval, objection and concerted public response to an era, Bil brings us into the world that is left when we all wonder - what's next?
MYNXII WHITE: "REVOLT"
Too often women in history have been silenced. We have lost the stories of courage and important moments in our transformation of ideas that have changed the destiny of the world. Mynxii White has created portraits based on strong women in history who have implemented and inspired change that shook and activated a revolution through revolt. Some of these portraits are of well-known women, some lesser known. Most have been imprisoned or killed for their ideas. This is a collection of a radical metamorphosis of brilliance influenced by some of history's best female minds.
