26 May Creative Photography by Glen Wexler
According to Eric Idle of Monty Python, Glen Wexler is, "A seven-foot Scotsman with a wooden leg whom I met Frog Rolling on an Eskimo trip in Northern Greenland." Believe what you will. That’s the point. Wexler’s pictures have taken the viewer deep into make-believe worlds that look real. His signature style of "improbable realities" has earned an international client base and the following of photography collectors.
Tim Wride, curator of photography for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), states, "Wexler’s pictorial constancy as a risk taker and his deftness as a problem solver are the characteristics that distinguish his work and make his images both meaningful and memorable."
Wexler, at 22 years old, photographed his first album cover for Quincy Jones Productions while still a student at Art Center College of Design. He quickly gained a reputation for his imaginative and elaborate photo illustrations for Michael Jackson, Van Halen, Rush, Black Sabbath, Yes, ZZ Top and many others. During the mid-1980s Glen’s images began to attract advertising clients, which include Acura, Piaggio, Bombardier, Sony, Jeep, Maxell, Adobe, Warner Brothers Pictures and hundreds of others. Wexler also creates feature photo illustrations for TIME magazine.
