Selby Gallery I:

Low Fidelity: Still Photographs by Bobby Grossman 1975-1983

August 13-September 20, 2014

Bobby Grossman’s sharp eye and warm personality made him an insider, photographing the major players and characters that made up the new wave “punk” era in New York in the mid 70s to early 80s as a professional but also as a friend. With over 25 photographs of the musicians, artists, writers and performers who changed pop culture – including such icons as Debbie Harry, Talking Heads, Basquiat, Warhol, and Burroughs – Grossman presents his unique vision of that time and place along with three present day collaborations with Japanese “Millenial” artist, Choco Moo.

Bobby Grossman is an artist and photographer. He was born in Manhattan, grew up in Westchester, NY and earned his BFA at The Rhode Island School of Design. In 1976 Grossman moved to New York City and took up residency at the Hotel Chelsea. Working as a freelancer by day he quickly found his way to Warhol’s famed Factory on Union Square where he was regarded as an insider. He soon became a regular presence, documenting the scene at CBGB and eventually the Mudd Club. Before long Grossman’s reputation as a contributing photographer to both major publications and underground journals became well established.
