Photographs Capture The Final Days At 5 Pointz

Photographs Capture The Final Days At 5 Pointz | Arts | Scoop.it
Last week, 5 Pointz, the former factory building and self-described ‘graffiti mecca’ in Long Island City, was whitewashed. The layers of legal graffiti that had built up over the years were painted in preparation for the planned demolition, which is paving the way for luxury condominiums. While there had been a couple stays of execution, it was an inevitable end to a building beloved by people from around the city and indeed the world. Art Director at mcgarrybowen, Eric Lau attended the last break-dancing battle outside the building and captured it in his poignant black and white photographs.

Iggy Pop in the late 70s/early 80s, previously unseen photographs taken by his girlfriend | Arts | Scoop.it
On February 21 of this year the well-regarded German newspaper Die Zeit ran an exclusive interview with Esther Friedman, who was Iggy Pop’s girlfriend for seven years, from roughly 1976 to 1982. They met while Iggy was living in West Berlin with David Bowie, where the two rock stars were hoping to dry out after a period of heavy drug use. Iggy and Bowie lived at Hauptstrasse 155 in Schöneberg.
