NEW YORK – ‚Wild Style‘ Then & Now – A Photographic Retrospective 2013

Für alle die den Film WILD STYLE von Charlie Ahearn mehr als einmal gesehen haben dürfte das hier interessant sein. Fotografin Liz Barclay zeigt wie einige ausgewählte Locations aus dem Klassiker heute aussehen. Darunter der Spot an der Cherry Street Ecke Clinton, wo der Regisseur Ahearn im Jahr 1980 noch „Nuclear War Dragon“ von Lee Quinones fotografieren konnte oder Howard the Duck früher und heute. Das COMPLEX Magazin hat die Fotos sehr schön gegenübergestellt (unten in den Fotos grüne Trennlinie hin und her bewegen): ‚Wild Style‘ Then & Now – A Photographic Retrospective 2013

„We revisited the locales throughout the Bronx and the Lower East Side where the film’s most memorable scenes were filmed, including the graffiti-covered handball court where Ahearn met the film’s star, artist Lee Quiñones, and this is what we found.“ (COMPLEX)
