History Is Made At Night

David Godlis’s, History Is Made At Night, includes 119 of his iconic black-and-white images from nights on the Bowery at CBGB between 1974 and 1979, shot with his handheld Leica and TRI-X film.

Godlis was front and center during the heyday of the New York Punk scene, capturing the likes of the Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell, Patti Smith, Television, and the Talking Heads.

He snapped one of my favorite photographs of Patti Smith backdropped by the street light in The Bowery, outside CBGB in 1976.
