PROJECTS: STREET PEOPLE

Michael Grecco has always been intrigued with “subcultures.† Here, Michael documents the energy and quirkiness of the boardwalk at Venice Beach. In a place almost frozen in the 60’s and 70’s Michael captures a small world that is home to all kinds of fringe refugees:   hippies, and hipsters, skateboarders, artists, and wide-eyed tourists. His photographs embody the circus that is contained in those few blocks, the variety of performers, and those strolling through, just watching the show.

PROJECTS: NAKED AMBITION

In 2008, Michael Grecco began his insightful and humorous portrait of the multi-billion dollar porn industry. His coffee-table book, Naked Ambition, was designed by Pentagram, and gave birth to a feature-length documentary, also directed by Michael. Naked Ambition has had numerous exhibitions of the photographs from the book, and garnered extraordinary positive reviews. In addition to the book and accompanying documentary, the project also includes the release of a CD of the original soundtrack music.
