Doug Biggert at The Verge

I Just love this show at The Verge.  The "sandal shop" in the front room is all polaroids from 1968-72 taken out front of the sandal shop that Doug worked at.  The captured moments are so personal and candid.  I've never seen regular people relaxing in their element from this time period.  I've only seen magazines and movies.  I could spend hours in there looking at them.  It reminds me of the first few years at Olipom when I took polaroids of everyone and taped them to the walls.  It will be cool to exhibit those in 20 years.  The large room of the show is portraits of hitchhikers.  It makes the sandal shop seem so innocent.  REally loved the whole show!

  1. Hello. My name is Mark Maynard and I used to know Doug Biggert several years ago, when he worked for Tower Records, and I was wondering if you might know how I could get in touch with him. The only lead I have is this art show, and it looks as though the gallery has closed. My website is: If you have any ideas, please let me know. Thank you, Mark.
