"This photo was taken in the fall of 1985 in New York City. I went down to the Basquait and Warhol show on Mercer street at Tony Shafrazi Gallery. I was across the street taking some photos of Zephyr and Revolt, the dynamic duo that had just done the "Wild Style" logo, which was pretty sharp. Taking photos of Zephyr and Revolt was a huge thrill for me, because they Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. They were really cool together. But I see Basquait and Warhol coming from diagonally across the street on Houston street towards the gallery. So I skedaddled across the street, a slow jog across the street and I shrugged my shoulders and said "You guys mind if i get a flick? please?" Then Basquait looked at Warhol and said yea he’s cool. So they paused for me. I said thanks and they went back into this big crowd that was waiting for them. So this was the jump off for me. I shot two dynamic duos in a minute there. I just had a natural knack for it. It’s something I love to do and doors opened up for me from there. This picture has turned out to be a very classic and iconic image." - Ricky Powell

ABOUT Ricky Powell:
Remembering Ricky Powell
November 20, 1961 – February 1, 2021


Born and raised in New York City, Ricky Powell is a legendary photographer who specializes in the environmental portrait. He graduated with an AA in Liberal Arts from LaGuardia Community College and a B.S. in Physical Education from Hunter College. Though Powell initially rose to fame because of his relationship with the Beastie Boys, he is well-known for his intimate photographs that have been featured in The New York Times, The New York Post, The Daily News, The Village Voice, TIME, Newsweek, VIBE, The Source, Rolling Stone, and more.

Born in 1961, Powell’s photographs focus on the organic New Yorker. His photographs simultaneously convey intimacy and detachment, as they provide a unique lens through which the viewer can analyze the mundane. Powell considers the relationship between the photographer and the photograph to be “a chemical connection of some sort”. The connection between Powell and his camera is only further stimulated by Greenwich Village, where he currently resides. As the intrinsic qualities of the photograph have changed since Powell began capturing his moments, so have the subjects; he is now more likely to “photograph strangers in his Greenwich Village neighborhood than multi-platinum hip-hop acts and Downtown art stars.”
