About this title


Stunning photography by Bill Bernstein. Containing many previously unpublished photographs, Disco takes the viewer on an access-all-areas tour of late 70s New York nightlife. Bernstein's eye was drawn to the characters that lived for the night, rather than the celebrities, the unknown men and women who were transformed by the nightlife haze. The pictures in this book are a document of an incredibly exciting and creative time, not only in music, but in social, political and fashion history as well.

From the Author:

One thing that struck me as I photographed the New York City Disco and nightlife scene in the late 1970's was the inclusiveness and overall diversity and cultural mix these clubs. I had never experienced a place where gays, lesbians, transgender people, black, white and straight people all mixed so freely and without judgement. It seemed to be a harmonious mix of cultures unseen by the world until this moment. 
"Be whoever you want to be". That seemed to be the mantra. Disco seemed so much more to me than the music, or the dance or the celebrities or the drugs. It was a safe haven for anyone and everyone for freedom of self expression. This is what I was drawn to as a photographer. I didn't know it then, but now I see that this was a short lived, "sneek peak" at a world of acceptance that we now, in 2015, are just beginning to see happen in "the real world."
