About

M+B Photo is pleased to present Titled (Cowboy), a survey of the American West by photographer Norm Clasen. The exhibition will feature images taken during the artist’s decades working as a freelance commercial photographer and explore the later controversy over his works' appropriation by artist Richard Prince. Norm Clasen: Titled (Cowboy) runs from March 3 to April 21, with an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, March 3 from 6 to 8 pm at the M+B Photo exhibition space located at 1050 North Cahuenga Boulevard in Hollywood. The exhibition coincides with the show Richard Prince: Untitled (Cowboy) on view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Clasen's photographs helped shape a visual lexicon that is integral to the iconography of the American West. To capture his iconic images of cowboys in their element, Clasen ate, drank, and rode with the men, earning their respect and trust. His authentic and natural point of view guided our cultural perspective of the ‘cowboy’ to its zenith, with his work appearing in newspapers, magazines, and billboards across the world.
