Weekend Recs : From This Moment On
Check out photographer Mark Morrisroe’s “From this Moment On” exhibition this weekend! It presents the post punk scenes of New York and Boston with images shot through a lens of romantic degradation and decay. His subjects often included lovers, friends, prostitutes hustlers and himself. Many images follow scenes from the nightlife and drug scenes. His career as a photographer began when he was given a Polaroid Model 195 Land camera. He experimented with unusual development techniques, receiving generous support of supplies, film, and chemicals from the Polaroid Corporation. His career did not last much longer than 10 years due to his death from AIDS. This exhibition will be a display of discovery of the self, illness, pain, sexuality and death. The show looks pretty dope because it portrays our City during its hay day. The exhibition will be open until May 1st 2011 in our very own New York City…. Check out more after the jump.
