Studio 54 by Rose Hartman traces the radiant history, social politics, and trailblazing aesthetics of the most iconic nightclub of all time. Behind the velvet rope, partygoers of all backgrounds and lifestyles could come together for nights of music, dazzling lights, and the popular song and dance “The Hustle.”
Anton Corbijn spent a week traveling the Mojave Desert, looking for the perfect location. Over several days in late 1986, the band and Anton traveled the American Southwest in a bus, staying in small hotels along the way. They started in Reno, NV and went through Bodie, Twentynine Palms and all around (and in) Death Valley. Corbjin was struck by the Joshua Trees and told the band of the story of the trees name. Bono liked the origin of the tree’s name and its religious significance (early settlers named the plant after the Old Testament prophet Joshua, as the tree’s stretching branches reminded them of Joshua raising his hands in prayer). The rest is history.
These shots capture the very essence of what going out was, is, and should be, all about. They showed the true democracy of the dance floor where anyone could be a star, as long as they had the right attitude and flair. The images in this show are a document of an incredibly exciting and creative time, not only in music, but also in social, political and fashion history too. All the photographs featured were shot by Bernstein. Manhattan was the epicenter of disco and Bill Bernstein captured it all.
The punk-rock band history told with images by the responsible of its birth.
