Taos, New Mexico: the lost album of Dennis Hopper

Taos, New Mexico: the lost album of Dennis Hopper | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Drugstore Camera feels like a stumbled-upon treasure, a disposable camera you forgot about and only just remembered to develop. Yet in this case the photographer is Dennis Hopper and the photographs are never before published. Shot in Taos, New Mexico, where Hopper was based following the production of Easy Rider in the late 60s, the series was taken with disposable cameras and developed in drugstore photo labs.

Christopher Makos White Trash

Christopher Makos White Trash | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Arriving in New York in the early 1970s, Christopher Makos fell in with the artists at Andy Warhol’s Factory and the underground music clubs on the Bowery. It was the dawn of punk, the exuberant days of denim and safety pins. Lost in their heady creativity, they gave Makos and his camera unprecedented access. An expanded version White Trash, Makos’ legendary 1977 book, was reissued by Glitterati in June, and this season they’ve published another retrospective of the photographer’s work, Everything: The Black and White Monograph. We spoke with Makos during a stop on his current “European Tour” about his memories of the seventies.

Tod Papageorge Talks To Elizabeth Avedon

Tod Papageorge Talks To Elizabeth Avedon | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

This month, Galerie Thomas Zander presents its first exhibition of works by Tod Papageorge. On view is a series of seventy black and white photographs from the legendary New York nightclub Studio 54 that was frequented by the likes of Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, Mick Jagger and Grace Jones. “Papageorge always had his camera at hand and between 1978 and 1980 he celebrated with the rich and beautiful, the artists and starlets; even today viewers can witness the eccentric and hedonistic party nights in his photographs. They revive the feeling of the disco era and express a profoundly urban spirit of directness, which condensed in New York at that time.”

Northern echo: Extraordinary photographs of Leeds in the 1970s reveal a vanished world | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

When he was growing up in Catford, south London, Peter Mitchell was a keen I-Spyer. The original I-Spy… books, recently relaunched by Michelin after an eight-year hiatus, were the vital accompaniment to every long drive. You kept a sharp eye out and tried to clock as many of the cars or birds or trees or flowers or buildings listed in the pocket-size books as possible.

Meryl Meisler : Purgatory & Paradise, Sassy '70s Suburbia & The City

Meryl Meisler : Purgatory & Paradise, Sassy '70s Suburbia & The City | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Meryl Meisler's Purgatory & Paradise: SASSY '70s Suburbia & The City juxtaposes intimate images of home life on Long Island alongside NYC street and night life – the likes of which have never been seen. Quirky, nostalgic and a bit naughty, it’s a genuine cultural capsule of a decade that captivates today’s generation. The photos and stories illustrate Meryl’s coming of age: The South Bronx, suburbia, The Mystery Club, dance lessons, Girl Scouts, the Rockettes, the circus, school, mitzvahs, proms, weddings, gay Fire Island, the Hamptons, feminists, happy hookers, CBGB, Punks, Disco, After Hours and Go-Go Bars, Jewish and LGBT Pride, street life, home theatrics, holidays, friendship, family and love. She had to photograph it all to make sense of it, hold onto the time, release and now finally share it. The ’70s were sassy, but also sweet, and so was Meryl.
