The mid-1970s was a time when the death of glam and the birth of punk collided in a celebration of glitter and grime, and fourteen-year old Paul Zone had a front-row seat to it all. Growing Up In The New York Underground: From Glam To Punk, presented by Tony Zanetta and Kymara, features more than seventy rare images from Zone’s life in New York’s music underground in the 1970s, and its legendary players.
Featured photographs include, Blondie, Debbie Harry, The Ramones, The New York Dolls, Iggy and the Stooges, The Dead Boys, Suicide, T. Rex, The Fast, and KISS, as well as musicians, artists, and scene-sters such as Richard Hell, Johnny Thunders, Patti Smith, Lou Reed, Jayne County, Alice Cooper, Lance Loud, Stephen Sprouse, Christopher Makos, Anya Phillips, Cherry Vanilla, Arturo Vega, Anna Sui, Sable Starr, James Chance, Lydia Lunch, and more.
More images are shared in Zone’s incredible photo memoir PLAYGROUND: Growing Up in the New York Underground. The book will be launched at the opening reception.
