Summer Weather: Michael Jang Hilarious Awkward Would-be Weather Reporters In The Eighties

In the early eighties, Michael Jang was hired to take a photograph of each person who auditioned for the job of weather reporter at a San Francisco TV station. 25 years later, the head shots were published in a book titled ‘Summer Weather’. Teased-up hair, retro glasses, we’re treated to an amusing glimpse at the style and sass of the eighties. Hilarious, awkward and visually arresting, Summer Weather is an eclectic addition to anyone’s collection.
‘In 1983, a local TV station held a contest for anyone who wanted a chance at reporting the weather. My job was to do a head shot of each contestant after their screen test. Five winners were chosen out of nearly one hundred applicants. The pictures were never used but I developed the negatives anyway without proofing them. They had been lost until recently and I am seeing them for the very first time.’ – Michael Jang
