Unearthing Julia Gorton’s Photos of ’70s-Era CBGBs

Perhaps not as well-known as the people she photographed, Julia Gorton was a common sight at NYC’s infamous CBGBs. Photographing everybody from Blondie to Billy Idol, DEVO and Tom Verlaine, Gorton spent plenty of time with her Polaroid camera capturing some of the most charismatic characters in the club. She tells VICE, “It was very dark at CBGBs. Sometimes the photos didn’t come out the first time. Since the film was expensive, I only shot a few frames of each subject.” Now her images have been unearthed and are rolling out on Instagram. Read and see more at VICE.
