First Run ReRuns – George Lange Delves into his 90’s Archives for New Show.

From ER to Friends, Melrose to X-Files.

For anyone who was pop-culture loving teenager in the 90’s, the name George Lange might not sound that familiar, but his work as a photographer should be more than burned into your teen psyche as Lange’s photographs graced not only the covers of major magazines world wide but also many a teenage bedroom wall (certainly mine) with his iconic photos with the casts of Seinfeld, Melrose Place, Dawson’s Creek, The X-Files and Buffy the Vampire Slayer – just to name a few.

Those iconic photos featured the cast of Friends all dressed in black and white, perching precariously in white shadow boxes on a red backdrop, the cast of Seinfeld, dressed in their character garb, posing under an umbrella with pigeons, X-Files star Gillian Anderson perched high on co-star David Duchovny’s shoulders and Merlose’s Marcia Cross and Thomas Calabro playing in copious amounts of feathers while Laura Leighton shot out of a television dressed in a slinky silver mini.

While these photos iconic and a flashback to the heights of prime time television that was the mid 90’s, these images slowly faded into fond memories perhaps found years later on a dusty Entertainment Weekly cover found in the attic and as Lange even notes on one of his Instagram posts, they become buried under the weight of history.

For 2019, Lange though, is taking a new positive approach to his archives with a new collection of his classic prints and embracing the work that he was once afraid to look into for fear of being unable to move forward. The collection, titled ‘First Run ReRuns’ offers a look at the never before printed images from some of Lange’s most memorable work. The photos that didn’t make the cover or included in the photo spread.

‘First Run ReRuns’ opens on March 7th at The Dairy for the Arts in Boulder, Los Angeles and runs until April 14th. For those wanting to know more about the images, sessions and Lange’s process can attend an evening with George Lange on March 20th where you can check out scenes from actual photo shoots, hear from those who admire his work and get an inside look at his dynamic process.

A sample from Lightburst Media’s Groovy 70’s coloring book

It’s been well over a year since coloring books for adults began to saturate the market with everything from flora and fauna, star wars and fantasy line art all readily available to buy online and in stores all over.  So popular the trend that Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure and Coloring Book by Johanna Basford topped Amazons best selling list and has to date sold over 2 million copies world wide.

You’ll remember not too long ago, I delved into this world and wrote about some awesome finds for the pop culture minded as the range of books commonly available were filled with swirls and flowers and intertwining vines that weren’t my cup of tea.  Those Taylor Swift – Harry Styles – Jamie Dornan coloring books featuring base line art are starting to become more popular and more rampant on the market.

Take a peek at () books that are on my must-buy list!
