The Vinyl Factory & The Society Club are excited to present a major new exhibition and limited edition book with legendary photographer Leee Black Childers. ‘Drag Queens, Rent Boys, Pick Pockets, Junkies, Rockstars and Punks' features over 30 iconic photographs of hugely influential '60s and '70s music and art legends - including David Bowie, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Robert Mapplethorpe, Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, Andy Warhol and his infamous "Superstars" such as Jackie Curtis and Candy Darling.
Documenting magical, significant and unimaginable times, the exhibition takes place at The Vinyl Factory Chelsea from Thursday 6 December through to 23 December 2013. Entry is free.
From Andy Warhol’s The Factory and Max’s Kansas City to The Chelsea Hotel and The Anarchy Tour, Leee has been eye-witness to the musicians and artists that defined a generation and made a major impact on the generation that would follow. “Andy Warhol told me to find your spot, grab a chair and let them come to you," says Leee.
