Marcus Leatherdale

Marcus Leatherdale began his career in NYC during the early 1980’s. Leatherdale photographed the NYC demimonde associated with the happening club scene at Dancetaria and Club 57. Personalities like Madonna, Winston Tong, Lisa Lyons, Andree Putman, Trisha Brown, Jodie Foster and Kathy Acker all had their portraits made by Marcus Leatherdale.


Paul Cava Gallery exhibited Leatherdale’s photographs in 1985, just three years after the photographer’s breakout exhibit held at the Molotov Art Gallery in Vienna in 1883. Presented here are two iconic portraits of the artist Andy Warhol and body builder Lisa Lyons.
