Leee Black Childers Chronicler Of Drag Queens And Punks Dies
07 APR 2014
Leee Black Childers, the photographer who captured a generation of the New York underground scene in the 1970s has died in Los Angeles. He first came to recognition, in the rock genre, photographing the glam rock scene with Bowie and Iggy. He was also one of the first to record the rise of the seminal New York punk scene, starting with the New York Dolls, in the early seventies. His many memorable shots of Andy Warhol from the factory days and 'drag queens' from the Hotel Chelsea are also iconic.
