Wax Poetics print collaboration with iconic New York photographer, Bill Bernstein.

Complimenting his career as a celebrated, award-winning portrait photographer, Bernstein has long nurtured an interest in documenting contemporary “tribes”—subcultures outside the mainstream exemplified by New York City’s late 1970's influential nightlife scene. His black and white photography captures disco at its pinnacle, with images that give us rarely seen glimpses into a world that ranges from Black, gay, and underground culture to the rarified celebrity haven of Studio 54.

Print information:

The Empire was located in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, far removed from the Manhattan nightlife and in many ways a different world than the typical New York City disco. Less focused on the cruisey, druggy scene prevalent across the river, it was a world where athletic skill and a distinct brand of music suited to skating ruled.
