IDOLS, ICONS AND QUEENS, OH MY! – GILLES LARRAIN – IDOLS

Run to the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York to see this wonderful photography show.  I was lucky to go to the opening and meet the artist.  He has dug up these wonderful images of his friends in New York City from 1970 -1973.  I was amazed to see the flamboyant and creative Harvey Fierstein in one of the images.  I never knew him as part of an “in crowd.”  These photos have a painted quality which gives them a dark and eerie feeling.  The 70’s never looked so explosively liberating !  “If you got it then flaunt it!”  That seems to be the rage in these wildly colorful photographs.
