Scene is photographer Jeannette Montgomery Barron's album of that exciting and innovative era; her life in New York in the 80s was filled with the early light of dawn after nights spent dancing at Area, the Palladium, or the Mudd Club. Vodka and cigarette-fueled dinners at the Odeon, salon-style lunches at Andy Warhol's Factory and mornings working out at the gym with Bianca Jagger.
Montgomery Barron's first portrait of Francesco Clemente was followed soon after by one of Andy Warhol, which led to portraits of friends Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. In rapid succession, she photographed all the icons and luminaries of the era including Willem Dafoe, Julian Schnabel, Robert Mapplethorpe, Jenny Holzer, Cindy Sherman, Kathryn Bigelow, George Condo, William Burroughs and many more.
Scene is a beautiful collection of fragile young souls, fearless in their desire to remake the nightlife and the art world in their likeness, and a poignant memento of those lost too early.
