Ofr Bookstore and Gallery are hosting an intimate fun show of Sam's work. This is the first retrospective of Sam's legendary calendar photography, produced primarily for Pentax from 1971 to 2000. The show runs from July 9th through to the end of August.
The 'Summer' part of the theme is obviously represented by the calendars whereas 'Paris' is being represented by 'November Girl' in various states of deshabillé with her melancholic longings in a bohemian bedroom and a cigarette to hand. In fact, the pictures were shot in Sam's studio in Johannesburg in 1966, using sets he styled and built, 'November Girl' has always been a firm favourite with the French who view her as quintessentially Parisian.
Two very rare signed vintage prints (with a handful of exceptions, Sam's vintage archive was unsigned) will be offered along with contemporary prints and vintage calendars.
See you in Paris...
