It was the end of the 1970s, and an incredible confluence of art, music, and ideas was swirling around in downtown Manhattan. "The people from the extraordinary New York milieu amongst whom I was living and working had no way of knowing that the years between 1977 and 1982 were enchanted, endangered, and unrepeatable," explains photographer Marcia Resnick, who documented this time of icons, iconoclasts, and antiheroes. Here she gives us evocative images of rockers Johnny Thunders, Joey Ramone, James Brown, Iggy Pop, David Byrne, Brian Eno, and Mick Jagger; beat poets William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, and Gregory Corso; and provocateurs John Waters, Steve Rubell, Gary Indiana, Abbie Hoffman, Norman Mailer, Andy Warhol, and John Belushi. A text by Victor Bockris and excerpts from contemporary writings create a context for Resnick's portraits of these influential "enfants terribles."
