The Guardian Runs Story about Green’s New Book
The Guardian ran a story about the new book by Associate Professor of Art Gary Green, When Midnight Comes Around. The article, “Trash, leather, sleaze: how Gary Green shot New York’s punk scene,” recounts how Green was able to capture the punk and post-punk scene in the late 1970s and early ’80s.
“What sets it apart is the sense that Green was both an insider – for a time, he shared an apartment with Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls – and an acute social observer who understood that he was witnessing an important pop-cultural moment driven by outsiders and misfits,” wrote the article’s author, Sean O’Hagan.
On May 15, O’Hagan interviewed Green on Instagram at #stanleybarkerbooks.
