Monte Clark is pleased to present an exhibition of Greg Girard’s photographs depicting America during the 1970’s and early 1980’s, many of which have never been exhibited before. Girard has spent much of his career documenting the social and urban transformation in Asia’s largest cities, as well as his travels between Asia and North America. American Stopover comprises transient scenes photographed in airports, hotels, bars and restaurants, captured in California, Nevada and Hawaii between flights bound for Asia.

 

Greg Girard’s photographs have been featured in TIME, Newsweek, National Geographic, The New Yorker, and numerous other publications. Several books on Girard’s work have been published, including Magenta’s Phantom Shanghai, listed as one of the top 10 photography books of all time by The Independent, (UK). Girard’s work has been exhibited at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, The International Center for Photography, New York, PM Gallery (London, UK), the National Gallery of Canada, the Yixian International Photo Festival (China), and numerous other venues.

 


“In the 1970s and early 1980s every trip to Asia started in California. Whether flying, or travelling by Greyhound down the coast from Vancouver, the journey truly originated in San Francisco or Los Angeles. I’d spend a few days, or as long as a few weeks, making pictures in California, Nevada and Hawaii before finally continuing on to Tokyo or Hong Kong. Multi- stopover one-way tickets were the norm, on an Asian carrier like China Airlines or Korean Airlines. A typical ticket would be routed YVR-SFO-LAX-HNL-TYO-SEL-TPE-HKG-BKK. I travelled light. A camera bag and another hand carry-sized bag containing tripod, film and a few clothes.”
