Bay Area photographer Ace Morgan's full frame film shots honestly and unabashedly portray the world that surrounds him. From the Bay Area punk scene, to LGBTQ rallies, to drug addicts and serial killers, from San Francisco to Detroit and beyond, Morgan's approach lacks pretense and artifice - the grit is almost palpable in his frames.
His first New York solo show, which opens tonight at Strange Loop Gallery offers a panoply of pictures from over twenty-six years of documentary work.
I had a chance to ask Ace a few questions via email the other day about his work, Kickstarter, punk and community.
