Edo Bertoglio captured New York’s starlets, rockstars and Warhol’s Factory crowd

This photographer shot the star power of Grace Jones, Madonna and Debbie Harry amongst the city’s heady club scene

“Everything started between 5th and 34th Street, on a clear and cold afternoon… all of a sudden we hugged, with tears in our eyes, terrified by the metropolis, by our own loneliness and the lack of stable work.

Attempting to overcome our own feelings, we walked right up to the 86th floor of the Empire State Building where the warmth of the light eventually welcomed us and showed to us the very essence of the city… it was certainly clear that New York was the only place where we wanted to stay. That city was going to be the luminous background of my photographs.”
