DESCRIPTION

We will be closed December 20 - 24th, resuming normal business hours on Tuesday, December 27th. 

Julian Wasser will briefly speak about his work at 3:45pm, December 3

Julian Wasser started his career in photography in the 1950s as a teenager shooting crime scenes in Washington D.C., which he sold to The Washington Post. After university and military service he settled in Hollywood and worked for many years as a contract photographer for Time, Life and People Magazine. Craig Krull Gallery will be exhibiting a broad scope of his work, including streetscapes of Los Angeles (particularly the Sunset Strip at night), images of iconic Los Angeles figures (such as Joan Didion, Frank Zappa and Rudi Gernreich) as well as a series of historic images of Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel and the Watts Riots. Wasser is also well-known for his photographs of the LA art scene, particularly his image of Marcel Duchamp playing chess with a nude (Eve Babitz) at the opening of his retrospective at the Pasadena Art Museum. Wasserʼs work is being used in promotional catalogues and advertisements for Pacific Standard Time and is featured in the exhibition “Good Vibrations: Connecting the Music and Pop Art of Southern California, 1960- 1980” at the Grammy Museum.
