Featuring new photographs by Guy Webster
Jan. 10 – Jan 17, 2019
Oscar Wilde said that “Man is least himself when he talks in person. Give him a mask and he will tell you the truth.” That’s the premise behind a new show going up at Porch Gallery with world-renowned photographer Guy Webster.
Webster, in his legendary career taking some of the most recognizable photographs of rock stars and other celebrities, trains his lens much closer to home for this week-long show January 10 to 17.
The photos include present or former Ojai residents collected by Webster in recent weeks at his studio on Bryant Circle. Webster made his name with iconic album covers by the Mamas and the Papas, Byrds, The Rolling Stones, Doors and Simon & Garfunkel. The new series comes after Webster has battled back from health issues to resume his life work, as chronicled in the Fall 2016 OQ cover story by Mark Lewis. Webster, besides being featured on the cover of the OQ, has shot them as well, including of Ted Danson.
Porch Gallery is located at 310 East Matilija Street and online at porchgalleryojai.com.
