Charley Gallay At Bleicher Project Space

Foto! Ray-Gun! Mambo!
Photographic works by Charley Gallay
October 2nd – 31st
Opening Reception: October 15th, 2011 5pm
Bleicher Project Space
Bleicher Gallery 355 North La Brea Ave Los Angeles CA 90036

Foto! Ray-Gun! Mambo! features a selection of Los Angeles photographer Charley Gallay’s recent lurid, cinematic portraiture. Occupying the unsettled border between then and now, the photographs in Foto! Ray-Gun! Mambo! evoke both a technicolor exuberance and the transistor twang of lonesome America.
Charley Gallay shoots for an unnamed photo agency and, as such, his images have appeared in numerous publications, including the NYTimes, Elle and Vanity Fair. Moreover, at one time Hallmark™ produced a greeting card based on a photograph of Willie Nelson that he took on-stage while Willie was playing “Whiskey River” at dusk, in the desert, in front of fifty-thousand people. True story. It was beautiful.

Charley Gallay. Yes.
