Arcana Books Hosts a Book Signing With Photographer Moshe Brakha
April 9, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On Sunday, April 9th from 4:00 to 6:00PM, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts for a book signing with photographer Moshe Brakha on the release of L.A. Babe: The Real Women of Los Angeles 1975-1988.
Moshe Brakha’s acidly crisp, otherworldly images evoke a certain stylistic sensibility and a knack for innovative and sensual photography that engages the viewer. This latest release, collects his most compelling subjects from the late seventies and early eighties – the various women he encountered all over Los Angeles. The book includes vintage portraits of legendary proto-punk band The Runaways, LaToya and Janet Jackson, Patricia Arquette, longtime Los Angeles scene-maker Angelyne, and many, many others. From Beverly Hills High School cheerleaders to brash bartenders and groupies, L.A. Babe captures the essential Los Angeles at its sunniest, coolest, grittiest glam and punk peak.
In a career spanning five decades, Moshe Brakha has created scores of iconic editorial images including work for the legendary Wet: The Magazine of Gourmet Bathing and Beyond, and album covers for the likes of Devo, The Ramones, Sparks, Neil Young, Cat Stevens, Cheap Trick, Aerosmith, Pat Benatar, The Weirdos, and Alice Coltrane.
