Kickstarter for “The ’80s Portrait Sessions” by Glen Wexler


Announcing our Kickstarter Campaign for The ’80s Portrait Sessions – Photographs by Glen Wexler with a Foreword by Billy F. Gibbons!

 “In a decade of rock and roll excess I was looking for a sense of intimacy.  When creating these portraits I sought to capture an authentic human connection behind the big personas.” — Glen Wexler

The ’80s Portrait Sessions represent the purest and most distilled embodiment of Wexler’s art. Exquisitely composed and lit, these portraits capture a precious record of glamorous times.  Famous artists such as Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan, Herbie Hancock and Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead are captured in intimate and sensitive portraits.  Legendary rock bands such as KISS, ZZ Top and Missing Persons are photographed in their finery along with influential producers, actors and models, reflecting the now infamous look and style of the 1980s and capturing the essence and glamour of the decade. This bookwill present over 60 images in 132 pages, printed with superb tritone printing on premium heavyweight paper in a 12x12 inch case-bound book with dust jacket. 

Our only remaining challenge is raising these final funds to go to press. The special printing techniques and materials have been tested and the results look amazing! We are ready to print as soon as we reach our goal. Here is the link to our Kickstarter campaign. Thanks again for your support!

 "These artists, present company included, seem somewhat serene in these shots as Glen shared his keen sense of artistry capturing us all as we really are." — Billy F Gibbons, ZZ Top
