Opening Reception: "Clothes Encounter" by Melvin Grier

Friday, September 28 at 6 PM – 8 PMgrier headshot

As a photographer for the Cincinnati Post for 33 years, Melvin Grier traveled the world shooting award-winning photos of news events, sports and famous personalities. What many people don't realize is that he has a secret love for fashion photography.

Cincinnati's style scene during the 1980s and 1990s is the subject of Clothes Encounter, a retrospective of Grier's personal fashion photos, some never before shown publicly. The exhibit, part of FotoFocus Biennial 2018, will be on display at Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington, KY from September 28 to November 4, 2018. It is included in the cost of museum admission and free to FotoFocus Passport holders and BCM members.

Grier's interest in fashion was spurred by magazines like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. "I started looking at the photos, then at the photographers -- David Bailey, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton." Inspired by these icons, he worked with Post reporter Mary Linn White to create fashion layouts, often in unconventional locations, like the roof of Union Terminal or the middle of Cincinnati's Fourth Street. "It was a simple process. We never had an art director, thank God. We never asked permission to shoot somewhere - we just did it."
