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. Hisblack 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.
Crisco Disco, though largely overshadowed today by venues like the Paradise Garage, was one of the premier underground gay nightclubs of the late ’70s–early ’80s. Located like its more famous contemporary in a disused parking garage, it was a multi floor space including a cavernous room with a DJ booth elevated high above the dance floor in an enormous mockup of a can of Crisco, the all-purpose baking grease that was notorious for other recreational uses in the gay community at the time.
