| A candid view of everyday life in America
Just Loomis (*1957 in Reno, Nevada) produced his first photographs in the seventies between the railroad tracks and casinos of his birthplace, Reno, images that tell of life in this town in the American West. A former assistant and friend of Helmut Newton’s, Loomis worked in the eighties as a fashion photographer for magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times Magazine. Turning in 1990 to portraiture and documentary photography, his pictures present a raw and honest view of everyday life in America: a waitress behind the counter of a Hollywood fast-food restaurant, a young couple full of hope, or children caught in moments of transition. As June Newton states, “He understands them, as he comes from the same place. These pictures are without artifice of any kind . . . . I call them a perfect example of Americana.” Exhibition schedule: acte2galerie, Paris, June 10–August 28, 2010 | Stenersen Museum, Oslo, February 10–April 3, 2011 | Galerie Hiltawsky, Berlin, April 9–May 21, 2011
