Book Review: White Trash Uncut by Christopher Makos

It seems a very good time to tell you about the latest publication of White Trash Uncut by Christopher Makos as I just had 22 staples removed due to my latest surgery and have felt all pinned together! 

Containing  images from the Super-Punk Rock days; these rockers broke outside the box and were some of the first to garner attention for their music through their look, their total package.

Book Cover Featuring Debbie Harry of Blondie

The book is definitely raw, beautifully real, and includes images from a group of movers and shakers that included artist Andy Warhol,  John Paul Getty III, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop, Fashion Designer Zandra Rhodes, Devine, and more.

Musician David Bowie

Debbie Harry described Makos as the first to burst on the photography scene and make a name for himself by recording the convergence both  the "Uptown" and "Downtown" worlds.

Model/ Fashion Illustrator David Croland and Grace Jones

Mix in Tennessee Williams, Halston, Debbie Harry, and Man Ray and you soon see the diversity of creativity abound in their circles.

Gigi Williams of Diane Von Furstenberg

Globally recognized author Christopher Makos, known for his portraiture, has  works in the permanent collections of  more than 100  galleries, museums and private collections around the world.

This book, originally written 40 years ago has become a cult classic, with the new release adding 12 new images in Hardcover format, with essays by Andrew Crispo, NYC Art Gallery Dealer, and Peter Wise, artist. A great addition to any collectors library, please find White Trash Uncut available for purchase at Amazon.
