A UNIQUE EXHIBITION IS SET TO UNVEIL PAUL JASMIN'S ETERNAL INFATUATION WITH THE CITY OF DREAMS
Paul Jasmin's career can easily be described as chameleon-like: Having started out as an illustrator, painter and actor, it was none other than Bruce Weber who ignited his love affair with the camera. Since then, the Montana-native has photographed a spectrum of celebrated personalities for a bevy of publications—including V and VMAN—signed off fashion campaigns, published three monographs to much critical acclaim and now sits on the faculty at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
Set to open on September 3rd at Casa de Costa on the Upper East Side, "An L.A. Sort of Place" is a rich survey of Jasmin's enthrallment with the city of dreams. The exhibition, composed of his new and vintage prints assembled from the last 50 years, is a sublime testament to his ultimate inspiration: Pink and turquoise skies, infinite highways, ethereal landscapes, all combined with pretty young things as casted subjects will most likely make New Yorkers yearn for a piece of that California dream.
"Jazz is a legend," says Jason Costa, the gallery's president. "On top of producing an incredible body of his own work, he's educated a generation of artists on the West Coast. His story is one-of-a-kind."
'An L.A. Sort of Place' will run through October 23rd, 2014.
