Michael Zagaris: Total Excess, New York

Viewing Michael Zagaris’ photographic oeuvre is like stumbling upon a box of rare records at a neighbourhood garage sale. His work, much of which has remained unseen until now, captures some of the most influential musicians of our time including the likes of Bob Dylan, Blondie, the Sex Pistols, Eric Clapton, Lou Reed, Patti Smith and more. It was the 70s and, for Zagaris, San Francisco was the place to be. Billed as one of the last great unseen rock archives, Michael Zagaris: Total Excess is now on view at New York’s Milk Gallery through December 18.
