KAREN AND RICHARD CARPENTER BY HARRY LANGDON

THE CARPENTERS
1981, Beverly Hills, CA
 Copyright © 2014 HARRY LANGDON
All Rights Reserved.

"Karen’s songs and soft romantic voice still echoes, especially this time of year. I have been saving this photo of The Carpenters for this holiday. Being able to revive and bring her image back to life again, is really quite a moving experience. I am glad I could help renew the memory of her, and perhaps reawaken the memories of her voice. It is very soothing, her voice restores kind, wholesome, romantic memories. Not to sound old fashioned but, I miss that in today’s music." -- Harry Langdon

AMERICAN ARTISTS IN BERLIN WHILE THE WALL FELL.


American Artist Judi Jensen
Photo taken by me in November of 2011
5900 Wilshire, Behind the Berlin Wall, installation.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
"American artist Judi Jensen. Judi was one of the artists selected for the temporary installation of the Wall Across Wilshire commemoration, in 2009. Here is a brief history of her connection to the Berlin Wall: (While living in West Berlin from 1985 - 1990, Judi did a series of the City and the Wall, having 13 exhibitions of her work there.) In 2006 I attended a talk given at the Wende Museum (in Culver City) by Judi, and American artist, Norton Wisdom - Norton was the first American artist to ever paint on the Berlin Wall (and is the originator of live painting because of his experience in Berlin.) He and Judi were friends, both lived in Berlin at that time, and shared their stories of their experience and how it affected them then, and today. I am very glad I was there to hear them speak. If you did not know the story behind her very delicate and whimsical pen and ink drawings, you would think they were illustrations for a children's book or maybe poetry (they reminded me of my favorite books when I was a little girl, Eloise, and Eloise in Paris.) Each drawing was the end of the streets (I believe 88) that lead to the Wall that surrounded the city and that knowledge made them very dark, but Judi had a way of bringing light to an extremely tragic place in time."

(The westside of the Berlin Wall facing Wilshire Blvd., in Los Angeles, CA was installed November 2009, commemorating the 20 year anniversary of "The Fall of the Wall.")

HUFFINGTON POST INTERVIEW "Turning the Lens on Langdon" By Billi Gordon

HUFFINGTON POST INTERVIEW WITH HARRY LANGDON, BY BILLI GORDON
Excerpt from the original interview. To read it in it's entirety, please click here.

"Photographing a person is a very intimate experience," said Langdon, who, despite being 79 years old and white, is sought out by rappers like Sean Puffy Combs and bad girls Missy Elliot and Eve. "I believe that there is an energy in a photo session, and if it's a positive energy, amazing things can happen. If you can look at a person lovingly and honestly and gain their trust, the circumstances are irrelevant. The best picture for me is one in which the person lets you see a bit of his or her spirit. It gives the picture a different edge."-- Harry Langdon

HARRY LANGDON ON PHOTOGRAPHING JOAN RIVERS




 Joan Rivers, 1985
 Photographed by
Harry Langdon
Beverly Hills, CA


"The photo sessions with Joan were Choreographed to a high degree of precision.  From the moment Joan would walk in the door,  every moment had to be utilized to ensure the least amount of time would be spent doing the photos.  Perhaps 5 – 8 minutes were used per wardrobe change.   At least 6 changes.----- Like all genius performers,  she had the ‘performance'  planned in her mind,  I was there to carry out what she had imagined. -  A certain amount of time we had to expect her to entertain us all with some of her hilarious recent material."  
-- Harry Langdon

LOS ANGELES URBAN ART MURALIST MAN ONE BEGINS A COUNTYWIDE PUBLIC ART PROJECT HONORING MANY FACES OF LA.

Contact:
Shawni Groves
(213) 255-0059
UrbanArtPR@gmail.com
-----------------------------------------

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Angeleno Native & Graffiti Artist Man One Is Working Closely With The
Los Angeles Department Of Cultural Affairs To Bring #FACESLA To Life;
Paying Tribute to Cultural Icons, Children, and A Few LA Citizens Nominated
Through His Social Media Campaign.


Los Angeles, CA (July 24, 2014) Internationally known graffiti artist; urban art muralist, Man One, is prepping to launch his latest project "FACES L.A." (#FACESLA) - an outdoor mural campaign helping to re-shape the perception people have of native Angelenos. The 11-year city enforced mural moratorium was lifted in fall of 2013, allowing artists to once again legally paint murals in Los Angeles, previously considered capital of the world for these outdoor works of public art. Man One is working closely with the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), to ensure all permits and required documents by L.A. City Hall are approved prior to painting. Once the public has been notified and the permits are granted, residents of various neighborhoods can expect to see colorful, large scale murals painted in his trademark style.


#FACESLA ​Sample Mural Rendering
By Man One


Man One, a BA graduate of Loyola Marymount University (LMU), shares his inspiration behind this independent art project: "It is difficult to create cohesion among L.A.'s disparate neighborhoods and communities, each community with its own unique persona, politics, and socio-economics, siloed away from its adjacent communities let alone those across town. Consequently, the perception of Los Angeles is too often limited to Hollywood, the entertainment industry and its celebrities. This is financially rewarding, which is a very good and essential result. Today, however, L.A. is enjoying an artistic and cultural renaissance. Now, for the first time in recent history, L.A. has a unique opportunity to dimensionalize and extend L.A.’s brand image beyond Hollywood and show others something that Angelenos know very well — L.A. is more than meets the eye."


​'LIL GIRL' ​
PRIVATE MURAL COMMISSION BY MAN ONE

The neighborhoods Man One will be spray painting these colorful tributes in, are located throughout all of Los Angeles County. This ongoing campaign will honor many different people representing all walks of life; children, mentors, activists from many decades ago and a few friends; all who in his opinion, uplift and best represent the true flavor of L.A. In part these murals will connect legacies of the past with hope for the future by bringing neighborhoods together via art, in an ever changing city.


In order to achieve his goal of one mural a month, for an indefinite period of time, he is reaching out to all citizens of LA asking them to share with him which "Face In L.A." should be painted next and why. To join in, simply send an instagram or tweet with the hashtag #FACESLA to @ManOneArt with a photo of who inspires you, and why. If you would like to share a personal story with Man One that requires more than 140 characters, please email: PR@manone.com and in the subject line include: #FACESLA/I Nominate. This project is slated to begin in August 2014, to become a sponsor please email PR@manone.com.

Socially conscious and community focused, Man One has been officially recognized by the City of Los Angeles as well as by the U.S. State Department for his dedication to promoting international understanding and cultural exchange through the arts. He has also been recognized by Artworx LA (formerly the Heart Project) and by the Friends of the Los Angeles River for his work in mentoring talented young artists from L.A.’s inner city.

Los Angeles, CA (April 28, 2014) ­­ Fans and collectors of world renowned urban artist, Man One, will have many opportunities to interact with him at several exhibitions and other art related events throughout the rest of April and May in both, Los Angeles, CA and New York.
Recently, he was a featured artist at the pop-up exhibition curated by 72 & Sunny; "Born Modern: physical vs. digital". The exhibition explored how technology affects our sense of self, through the works of 21 artists. In his words: "My mixed media piece 'Just QRious', is an experiment in graffiti and social media technology that poses the following questions to the viewers: Can you read graffiti? Do you have to understand it in order to appreciate it? Can the common person access art? Who is allowed to engage?"  Los Angeles based 72 and Sunny creates cultural impact on behalf of brands. The company was named “Agency of the Year” for the past two years by Ad Age and Adweek.
