Doug Biggert, MidMo nailed by Vice squad!

Doug Biggert got a big ole write up in the brand new issue of Vice magazine and they quoted our March ’08 article on Biggie. Can you say ‘world class city’?

The article, by noted curator Bob Nickas, examines Biggert’s Hitch Hiker work (or ‘pictures’ as Biggert insists), most of which is currently on display in Biggert’s show at the Verge Gallery and Studio Project. Nickas stumbled across Biggert’s Hitch-Hikers book in Europe and tracked the Midtown photographer down through his Parisian publisher. The article is part of Vice‘s annual Photo Issue, a behemoth issue of Vice that’s a strictly Limited Edition Collector’s Item Classic.
Good luck finding a copy if you don’t already have a subscription. Notoriously difficult to find, Vice is distributed (for free) only at cooler-than-thou boutiques, galleries, etc (Artifacts is the only place we know of that has it in town) and the Photo Issue is usually gone about ten seconds after the box is opened. And, ten minutes later you’ll find it for sale on Ebay for way more than you wanted to pay.

Congrats DB!
