Bill Bernstein – The Disco Photographs

Bill Bernstein’s photographic career began at the Village Voice in the 1970s, where he specialised in pop culture and street photography. In December 1978 he began an eighteen-month project to document the nightlife of New York City. In 1981 these important images were collected together and published in Night Dancin’ and then shown for the first time at David Hill Gallery in 2015. 

Of the late 70s Disco era, Bernstein says, “It was a momentary glimpse of a culture of inclusion that we are only beginning to see emerging in our world today.”
