Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws

Los Angeles photographer Thomas Alleman notes, “I moved to San Francisco from Michigan in 1985, with hopes of becoming a newspaper photojournalist. But I was young and ornery and a little weird, and I didn’t fancy the unobtrusive, “objective” photographic style that daily newspapers practiced in those days. I had something in mind that was more personal, more astringent, and somewhat kookier, based on my near obsession, in those days, with Garry Winogrand’s “Public Relations” book, Lee Friedlander’s party pictures, and Mark Cohen’s very aggressive flash-on-camera street-shots from Pennsylvania.
