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.”
