"Everybody knows, well maybe not everybody, but Keith Haring looked up to Andy Warhol like crazy. I remember this was taken in the spring of 1986. It was at an AIDS benefit at the Jacob Javits Center here in New York. It's a big convention center here. It was on the main floor, the place was the size of 5 football fields. I was kinda standing outside as they approached, and I remember that night I got another one indoors, but I don't know what happened to the negatives. I'm hoping when I clean out my closet I might get lucky. Who knows, there are miracles." - Ricky Powell
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
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.
Documenting NYC Street since 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.”
