Bill Owens is an internationally renowned photographer living in Hayward, California. His most famous work, Suburbia, has been exhibited in museums around the globe, but it is just one part of his dynamic creative life.
Five Decades of Photography is the first exhibition to feature Billâ€™s photographs from the Peace Corps in the '60s to the Rolling Stones at the Altamont concert (some photos of which made it into his upcoming collaboration with Altamont Apparel) all the way to his newest video work.
Bill is a vibrant "people person" who shows us our real selves with wry humor and wit. If you only see one exhibition this year, this should be the one! Learn more about Bill Owens.
