“People, fucking people; it was the key for sure. Then the death toll, especially in 80s New York. Live like you mean it, you could easily be next. Love full on.”
American/Swedish photographer Jesper Haynes was born in Edinburgh, Scotland 1962. When he was 16 years old, he met Andy Warhol in Stockholm who encouraged him to come and live in New York, once in New York he started working for Ralph Gibson printing in the darkroom for five years. Days were spent in the darkroom and nights at club Area while living in Larry Clarks apartment on Hudson and Canal, “I never saw daylight”.
His photographs are part of the permanent collection
at the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm, Sweden.
Art book store Konst-ig in Stockholm writes:
“Irresistible energy! The punkish photographs – often grainy black & white – exudes an underground feel, a clear sense of place and ultimately belonging. It’s Haynesville!
From NYC to Tokyo, back to Brooklyn and finally Bangkok:
