Capturing an exciting and innovative era, Scene is a collection of portraits by renowned Warhol Factory photographer Jeannette Montgomery Barron, of artisans in their heyday in eighties New York. With Andy Warhol, Katherine Bigelow, Willem Dafoe and Bianca Jagger just some of the famous names in the black and white collection, there are plenty of other inspiring musicians, filmmakers, painters, writers, fashion designers, publishers, actors, models, and photographers, she captured so beautifully in this capsule of NYC when the young flocked to find like-minded creatives for days and nights of hedonism and indulgence. This book is a celebration of the scene, and its brilliance and fearlessness.
