About Bobby Grossman (excerpt from his biography on www.bobbygrossman.com):
Bobby Grossman arrived on the New York scene in the mid-seventies with a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. His first job was assisting Richard Bernstein, the artist known for his covers of Andy Warhol’s Interview. Bernstein’s studio was at the Chelsea Hotel, ground zero for the punk explosion, and the hotel became Grossman’s home.
In addition to assisting, Grossman worked as a magazine illustrator, but he became more interested in photographing the scenes he encountered at the Chelsea, at Warhol’s Factory, and C.B.G.B.’s. His ability to get inside scenes and befriend his subjects, and his punky photographic style made his pictures popular with a host of publications – Rolling Stone, Interview, Artforum, The New York Times, Soho Weekly News, The VIllage Voice and many more.
His photos were picked up by clients as diverse as MTV and Vogue. He also created promotional pictures for his artist friends, including Blondie, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, The Ramones, Robert Fripp and Talking Heads (for whom he shot the cover of Psycho Killer.)
