You kind of can't even tell they're from the 80s! Ok, maybe you can but the first one looks like modern day or 70s or 80s. I love em!

Whoa - just read about this in this week's New York Magazine (the one with a pregnant 60 year old on the cover a la Demi Moore from the 90's [that's a whole other thread]) and was planning on looking this guy's work up. Lo and behold you've made it super easy for me. Thanks babe! :)

i saw these at the Tate in London and loved them. it's just amazing how gritty they are and how much the city has changed in the last 20 or so years.
