This is fantastic. An interactive, well-designed web article about Tod Papageorge, who photographed Studio 54 in its heydey, with accompanying photographs of said photographer by one of my favourite photographers Jeremy Liebman. And that’s not all, as you scroll down this slick, smooth site and learn about the glitter-smeared naughtiness of the club that notoriously only let in people with “high energy” and was once referred to as the best party in the world, ever, you are treated to soundbites from an interview with Tod about his new book.
Stop to take in a stunning high-res photo of a bunch of women head-to-toe in satin lounging on a sofa – something you don’t tend to clock in 2-4-1 night in your local club – and while you admire them, listen to the stories about the club straight from the horse’s mouth. Call me old fashioned, but I never thought I’d see the day we’d have articles that look, sound and read as well as these. The guys who are behind the site, All Day Every Day should be very, very pleased with themselves.
You can buy Tod Papageorge’s book about Studio 54 over here.
