1980s Weather Wannabes Captured in Glorious Style

In 1983, while working at a local television station, photographer Michael Jang captured the eccentric, and frankly oddball, people who came in to audition as weather presenters. The collection, Summer Weather, never before displayed, recently emerged into glorious light. And after 30 years it is well worth the wait.

These portraits are beautifully shot, honest and just a joy to look at (via Its Nice That)
