Marvin Silver was formally trained at Art Center, but claims that photographing Los Angeles artists in the 50s and 60s, and being exposed to their experimental and conceptual ways of thinking, was his greatest education. In the early 60s, Silver worked as a freelance photographer for art publications, and soon formed friendships with artists and loaned out his darkroom to Wallace Berman and George Herms. Silver’s photography is represented by the Craig Krull Gallery in Santa Monica, and his images of artists such as Billy Al Bengston, Wallace Berman and Edward Kienholz have been reproduced in numerous publications.
