PhotoCentral presents Altamont to America: Bill Owens and the Legacy of Suburbia featuring the work of internationally renowned photographer Bill Owens. Owens was born on September 25, 1938, in San Jose and lives in Hayward, California. From his travels around the globe including a Peace Corps tour in Jamaica, he developed his unique skills and aptitude as an anthropological and social photographer. His book Suburbia, one of the 100 seminal photography books of the 20th century, captured the change in his home territory with much the same spirit of the traveler that he brought to foreign places. Our Kind of People (1975), Working: I Do It For the Money (1977) and Leisure (1979), followed Suburbia. Bill Owens’ work is in museums and collections throughout the world including the Museum of Modern Art NY, Berkeley Art Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and the San Jose Museum of Art. He has received a Guggenheim Fellowship and two NEA grants. Owens founded Buffalo Bill’s Brew Pub in Hayward in 1983, one of the first brewpubs to open since prohibition. In 2003, Bill Owens founded the American Distilling Institute, a professional membership organization and publishing house “to promote and defend the art and enterprise of craft distilling.” As the president of ADI, Owens has become one of the leading spokesmen of the craft distilling movement.

Altamont to America celebrates the work of Bill Owens for his 80th birthday. Come by for unique experience of seeing a range of Bill’s work spanning six decades and meet the photographer. The exhibition coincides with the book release of Altamont to America: Bill Owens and the Legacy of Suburbia, the catalog for the exhibition. Bill will be on hand to sign copies of the limited edition book.
