Underground Photos From New York’s Seediest Years.
VICE Interview by Miss Rosen with Miron Zownir published worlswide in seven languages.
Miron Zownir captures the provocative energy and aggressive hedonism of the city in the 80s.
Before gentrification erased all that had come before, Zownir captured New York’s seedy years when prostitutes walked the streets, movie theaters screened porn around the clock, live sex and peep shows took loose change, and the West Side piers were the ultimate destination for anonymous sex—but also art interventions by Vito Acconci, Gordon Matta-Clark, and Peter Hujar in the years following Stonewall.
In advance of a presentation of his work by Galerie Bene Taschen during Photo London Zownir takes us on an incredible journey though the New York underground.
