Artist talk and signing at San Francisco Camerwork on June 29th

There will be an artist talk and book signing at San Francisco Camerawork on Wednesday, June 29th from 6:00-8:00p.m. The evening will feature Jona Frank: Modern Girls and Mimi Plumb: The Girls. SF Camerawork is located at 1011 Market Street, 2nd Floor in San Francisco.

Jona Frank: The Modern Kids  Jona will give an artist talk and sign copies of her new book, The Modern Kids (Keher Verlag). Beginning in 2010, Frank explored and photographed an amateur boxing club in a working-class community outside Liverpool, England. These photographs combine the qualities of formal portraiture with the intimacy of viewing the sport from a woman’s point of view. The book features an essay by artist and filmmaker Bruce Weber.

Mimi Plumb: Will open the evening with her ongoing project, The Girls. For the past five years, Plumb has been making color portraits of young women who remind her of her 1970′s suburban roots.
