New York Noise brings together the work of Paula Court, the iconic photographer who captured the debauchery, sleaze and art of 1980s New York. Lou Reed, ESG, Richard Hell and George Clinton are just a handful of the musicians who appear in this stunning book of images representing New York’s underground scene, or as David Byrne called it, the 'bohemian living museum'.
“New York was a scary and legendary place and downtown was like a bohemian living museum, which was pretty thrilling for an aspiring artist and musician. It was all very new and exciting, at least for me and it was incredibly funky, the sleaze and poverty were everywhere.”
