Photo by BILL OWENS. 4-14 MAY 2018

Fifty years after the great cultural revolution of 1968, the work of the master of photography Bill Owens will be presented for the first time in Georgia. In his series of B/W images Owens documents the rise of student’s protests at the Berkeley University, in the City of San Francisco. It is a movement of rebellion, a desire for change and renewal. Using photography as a means of social documentation, the artist makes a real anthropological investigation, telling us one of the most important cultural turning point in the world.
