A compilation of retrospective images widely believed to McMullan’s most celebrated and historical which include snapshots from fashion, politics, music and artistic revolution. As well, the book contains an eccentric mix of elite affairs both uptown and down. The consummate insider, Patrick McMullan’s coffee-table stunner chronicles notables with an intimacy obtained from behind the proverbial velvet rope. From intriguing unknowns to the celebrated, McMullan has captured the legends of our time including Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Madonna, Debbie Harry, Bianca Jagger, Grace Jones, Cookie Mueller, Liza Minnelli, Francesco Clemente, Halston, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Calvin Klein, John F Kennedy Jr, Ozzy Osbourne and more. A decade of endless parties, so8os is an entrance into a world that most have heard about but only few have entered. Patrick McMullan’s photography career began in the early 1980’s as a photographer for Details Magazine with an Instamatic camera and through the encouragement of Andy Warhol. One of the world’s most celebrated event, fashion and society photographers, his illustrious career has spanned more than 30 years. The exhibition consists of over 80 black and white prints in various sizes. All prints are made with Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper.
