Michael Jang spent nearly four decades working as a successful commercial portrait photographer whilst quietly assembling a vast archive of thousands of remarkable images and authoring several now-iconic series. "College" is perhaps his most well-know of these, comprised of images taken during Jang's formative years in the early seventies as a student at The San Francisco Art Institute and CalArts. In 2014, San Francisco photography publisher Hamburger Eyes produced two small small print runs of a book of these that each quickly sold out. A third, expanded edition was then printed, but due to circumstances was never publicly distributed. Now, Michael Jang himself has taken his cache of these and produced a Deluxe edition of this gem that contains a SIGNED 7 x 5" black and white photograph from the series along with a facsimile of his 1973 CalArts "report card" from instructor Ben Lifson. "College" delightfully documents the camaraderie, creativity, boredom, and debauchery of Art School life. In addition to In addition to fly-on-the-wall shots on campus, "College" features such luminaries as David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Ravi Shankar, David Hasselhoff, Michael Douglas, Steve Allen, John Baldessari, and many more. A brand new, most handsome example of this heretofore unavailable rarity additionally SIGNED by the photographer in ink. Inventory Number: E000MJC
