With the publication of with his seminal 1977 book, White Trash, Christopher Makos burst on to the photography scene and made a name for himself as the first photographer to record the convergence of the "uptown" and "downtown" worlds, as Debbie Harry fondly remembers.
This raw, beautiful volume chronicled the punk scene as it came of age on the streets of New York. Interspersed in the mix are portraits of boldface names, including Andy Warhol, Man Ray, Tennessee Williams, Halston, John Paul Getty III, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Grace Jones, Patti Smith, Richard Hell, Tom Verlaine, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Zandra Rhodes, Divine, Lance Loud, and Marilyn Chambers, among others.
While the first book was a throwaway, this version, produced some forty years later, is being presented as an extremely collectible art book, now recognized as a classic in the world of pop culture photography.
