From Jeremiah’s review of Les Simpson’s photographs in the exhibition “NYC c. 1985” in Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York:
I talked with artist Linda Simpson about her photographs and she shared them with us here. “My slideshow is all in color. It’s a collection of very random snapshots that I took throughout the decade–all for fun and shot with basic point-and-shoot cameras. The photos are of friends of mine, after-dark events, celebrities that I shot at various encounters (including Liz Taylor!), ACT UP protests, Wigstock in Tompkins Square Park, etc.
My photo credit is ‘Les Simpson,’ since almost all the pictures were taken before Linda was born (in the late 1980s).”
