To coincide with the very special ‘Last Dance’ exhibition on display at Defected HQ through mid-April, DStore are proud to present this limited Glitterbox version of the now sold out first edition of Bill’ Bernstein’s ‘Last Dance’ photography book. Available now for the first time in hard back and exclusive to DStore, this 135-page book documents the style, fashion, fun, fantasy and music of New York’s 1970’s club culture.
This edition will be signed by Bill Bernstein and is available to order online from DStore or can be purchased at the exhibition (till 29th April).
Featuring iconic images from Studio 54, Paradise Garage, Mudd Club, Fun House, Xenon, Empire Roller Disco and more this personal collection of images is curated from the archives of Bill Bernstein. A collection of many of his favourite images caught on film from the “uninhibited and judgment free” club culture of NYC’s legendary 70’s night-life with many never before seen photos.
With a Foreword by Honey Dijon and an Afterword by Defected Records/Glitterbox’s Simon Dunmore, 'Last Dance' is a “must have” wild ride for party people who love to dance and see and feel those amazing high-energy vibes, as well as those who want to look back and reminisce about those special nights back when.
“Bernstein captured the real faces of disco” -HARPER’S BAZAAR
“When I look at Bill’s work from this time, what I really see is a record of freedom, liberation, joy, because I am a proponent of joy. What I see is the true sense of freedom…” -HONEY DIJON
“In the late 70s, The Village Voice sent a young Bill Bernstein to shoot at Studio 54 and he left with the first of his images, now mythic, of disco at its peak” -THE NEW YORK TIMES
