I got a bit of treat while I was off in DisneyWorld with my kids last week. You may remember my recent post wherein Bob Egan of PopSpots NYC landed the plane for me in pinpointing the exact location of a certain photograph of Television. Well, my blogging comrade (blograde?) Tim B. of Stupefaction (and founder of the undersung New York Nobody Sings) reached out of the mighty GODLIS (the photographer behind the image in question) to hip him to it. Not only did Godlis weigh in on the comments, but he blogged about the whole thing himself! Click here to read that.
I should point out, at this stage of the proceedings, that I have been completely in awe of this man's work for ages. Godlis, like my friend and former neighbor Glen E. Friedman, is one of those photographers who truly had an uncanny knack for being in the epicenter of something that was brewing well beneath the radar. His pictures synonymous with all things NYC Punk, Godlis managed to capture images of future luminaries in a truly distinctive style that is all his own. In all seriousness, the list of legitimately ICONIC photographs taken by this man is too unwieldy to cite (but you can check out his work here).
In any case, I'm completely thrilled that Godlis was psyched about the whole thing, and I totally share his admiration for Bob Egan's unblinking eye for detail.
Tim B. posted this as well, but below is a quick montage of some of Godlis' celebrated photographs. Enjoy.
