PHOTOS: Queer Icons Of The ’70s and ’80s Resurface In Milan
Jul 03, 2014
An exhibition of photography by Christopher Makos, Altered Images, is currently taking Milan by storm at Galleria Carla Sozzani. The exhibition, a series of 62 photographs captures the essence and artistic scene of the ’70s and ’80s in New York City. Christopher Makos was described as “the most modern photographer in America” by Andy Warhol and captured a series of photographs featuring the likes of Jean Michel Basquiat, Tennessee Williams, David Bowie, Grace Jones, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop and Divine. Many images in this collection were featured in his infamous debut book White Trash, published in 1977. Andy Warhol was so blown away by the book he bought one thousand copies. The collection on exhibition at the Sozzani includes a series of eight Altered Images, created to represent the changeable identity of the human being with a wink to Man Ray’s shots of Marcel Duchamp’s alter ego, Rose Selay.
Take a sneak peak into the gallery…
