Bass Culture Michael Wyeth
About Michael Wyeth: Born in Cape Town (1952), Wyeth studied graphic design at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town, majoring in photography. He has exhibited mostly in Cape Town, notably on SA Photo Statements, at Iziko South African National Gallery (1988), and most recently on the Month of Photography, October 2008. Owner of Imago Visual, a graphic design and photography business, he is currently working towards his first solo photographic exhibition of recent works, scheduled for 2009. This portfolio of The Base/Jazz Den documents the establishment of the club and musicians/performers that appeared there over a period of two years in the late 1980s. Apart from sporadic appearances in newspapers at the time they were made, this body of work has not been shown before.
