Edited by Bruce Hainley, Commie Pinko Guy is the first European monograph devoted to the photo-based work of artist Larry Johnson (born 1959, Long Beach, California).
As part of a generation of artists that emerged in the US in the early 1980s (with, for example, Louise Lawler and Richard Prince), Johnson is the ‘artist’s artist’ par excellence, highly respected by fellow practitioners and students – he has taught at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles for many years – but little known outside of these circles.
