Moving to LA in ’72 as Creative Director of United Artists Records, Seeff caught some capture-worthy milestones, turning him into quite the subject himself: 5 Grammy noms for cover designs, the opening of his indie studio on the Sunset strip, photographic sessions becoming legendary and drew in large audiences, and simultaneously, his innovative capture graced plenty magazine and album covers, making him an important contributor to a stimulating era.

Be prepared to eye feast on nothing but the best: Blondie at The Chelsea Hotel in NYC, comedic captures of Steve Martin, James Taylor striking a pose at Martha’s Vineyard, Steve Jobs in Woodside (with an Apple), and many more that stem from Seeff’s All black and white everything, too.

Ron Robinson is located at 1327 5th Street, Santa Monica 90401. To RSVP, click here.
