FROM BOSTON TO
THE BOWERY: Photos by GODLIS 1970-1979-John Nikolai has put together
this show of photography by Godlis over at The JP Art Market -
here's the scoop:
In the early '70s, Godlis was a photography student in Boston, relentlessly
documenting the city streets and everything that struck his interest. Not long
after getting his first review of his exhibited work in The Boston Globe, Godlis
left Boston for New York arriveing just in time to become a solid fixture of the
foundling NYC punk scene which he found waiting for him at CBGB upon moving
to New York. His iconic images of Patti Smith, the Ramones, Talking Heads and
other bands who began in that era have become part of popular culture and his
many of his photographs of Boston are being shown for the first time in this
exhibit. "FROM BOSTON TO THE BOWERY: Photos by Godlis 1970-1979" captures enthralling
moments frozen in time in two different places in an exhibit that is very Boston,
very NYC, very punk rock and very 1970s. ...Godlis will give a special talk at the Opening Reception at 5:45PM!!
