Studio 54 made a name for itself by being the kind of place where anything goes, and the trendy New York nightclub was known for playing host to some of the most famous faces of the day.
These people didn’t necessarily want their picture taken while partaking of all the fun Studio 54 had to offer, but there were artists and photographers present who blended right in with the club’s star studded clientele.
One shutterbug who totally dug that Studio 54 vibe was named Hasse Persson, and he was there to capture it all and document the club's microcosm of reality. Unfortunately Hasse’s photos were never published and therefore never shared with the curious world...until now.
Max Strom's new book Studio 54 features never before published photographs by Hasse Persson, images that immortalize some of the amazingly rare moments that took place at Studio 54, like Andy Warhol acting like a goofball!
