Seventies New York was the scene of a unique – and gloriously trashy – creative explosion. Punk had just made its mark and New Wave was in its infancy, and Christopher Makos was there to capture it all. Considered to be the first to document the American punk scene to the public at large, White Trash has achieved seminal status for its direct and raw portraits of many of the greatest artists of this era, such as Patti Smith, Tennessee Williams, Andy Warhol, Man Ray, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Divine, Iggy Pop, Grace Jones and many others, alongside the gutter-glamour ephemera – safety-pin earrings and cigarette butt necklaces – that characterised the artful nihilism of punk.
