Bill Owens and True North Editions celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the seminal book, Suburbia with the production of a profound limited-edition portfolio available through Scott Nichols Gallery.

Produced in partnership with and under the supervision of Bill Owens, digital remasters were created by scanning the original negatives at the highest possible resolution. All image repairs and adjustments remain faithful to the original negative and are approved by Bill Owens.

Prints in Bill Owens – 50th Anniversary Suburbia Collection were made using an Epson SureColor P7570 printer on Moab Juniper Baryta Cotton Rag 305 paper for the highest archival standards. This paper was chosen for the quality preferred by Bill Owens in reproducing his work as closely as possible to the silver gelatin papers of 1972.

Title pages and essays are printed on Epson Hotpress Bright Rag. Cover sheets featuring quotes from the subjects or titles are printed on Epson Enhanced Ultra Premium Presentation Matte.

Project concept, editing, design, and production by Geir and Kate Jordahl.

BILL OWENS, I don’t feel that Richie playing with guns will have a negative effect on his personality. (He already wants to be a policeman). His childhood gun-playing won’t make him into a cop-shooter, By playing with guns he learns to socialize with other children I find the neighbors who are offended by Richie’s gun, either the father hunts or their kids are the first to take Richie’s gun and go off and play with it.

BILL OWENS was born on September 25, 1938, in San Jose and lives in Hayward, California. From his travels around the globe including a Peace Corps tour in Jamaica, he developed his unique skills and aptitude as an anthropological and social photographer. His book Suburbia, one of the 100 seminal photography books of the 20th century, captured the change in his home territory with much the same spirit of the traveler that he brought to foreign places. Our Kind of People (1975), Working: I Do It For the Money (1977) and Leisure (1979), followed Suburbia. Bill Owens’ work is in museums and collections throughout the world including the Museum of Modern Art NY, Berkeley Art Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and the San Jose Museum of Art. He has received a Guggenheim Fellowship and two NEA grants. Owens founded Buffalo Bill’s Brew Pub in Hayward in 1983, one of the first brewpubs to open since prohibition. In 2003, Bill Owens founded the American Distilling Institute, a professional membership organization and publishing house “to promote and defend the art and enterprise of craft distilling.” As the president of ADI, Owens has become one of the leading spokesmen of the craft distilling movement.
