Candid and Intimate Snaps From the Club 57, New York in the Early 1980s

Robert Carrithers lived in New York during the early '80s, a very special unique time of creativity in New York. He was a regular at a place called Club 57 in the basement of a Polish church on St. Marks in the East Village.

It was a creative laboratory that would change night after night with themes and happenings. One night there would be an art opening and then another night there would be bands, films or a crazed theme party. Many talented and fun people developed their art at Club 57 throughout this time, including The Cramps, Madonna, Keith Haring, Cyndi Lauper, Charles Busch, Klaus Nomi, The B-52s,... and to a lesser extent, Jean-Michel Basquiat. The following photographs capture some of these memorable people through portraits or at the various events.
