      A Conversation with Michael Jang, Sandra S. Phillips, and Nion McEvoy

      On the closing day of his career retrospective, 'Michael Jang's California,' photographer Michael Jang and curator Sandra S. Phillips are joined by Nion McEvoy for a wide-ranging conversation about the resonances of place, person, and time in Jang's work. 'Michael Jang's California' presents a rare, immersive journey through Jang's career, from the 1970s to the present. The exhibition is curated by Phillips, SFMOMA curator emerita of photography and Jang's longtime collaborator. It assembles dozens of prints from seminal projects as well as ephemera from his past photographic process. What is apparent is Jang's uncanny ability to capture both the idiosyncratic and the quintessential in a wide range of subjects. The survey is augmented with photographs from the McEvoy Family Collection by Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Garry Winogrand that situate Jang's work among his major influences.

      Michael Jang (b. 1951) is a photographer who has documented a number of groups and subcultures from all strata of society. He has earned a living as a portrait photographer, capturing iconic figures such as Jimi Hendrix, Ronald Reagan, and Robin Williams, among others. His work is featured in the collections of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown; the New York Public Library; the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland; and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Who is Michael Jang? (Los Angeles: Atelier Editions, 2019), the first monograph of Jang's work, is to be released this Fall. Jang received his BFA from California Institute of the Arts, Valencia and MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. He lives and works in San Francisco.
