From Warhol through punk and the dirty alleys in between, photographer Leee Black Childers documented New York's fringes in the 1970s. After being hospitalized last month Childers died on Sunday (4/6), details forthcoming. Many of Childers' most iconic photos were collected for the 2012 book, Drag Queens, Rent Boys, Pick Pockets, Junkies, Rockstars and Punks. You can check out a short video on the NYC release of that book below.
Leee, you will be missed but you live on through your work. Rest in peace.
