Marcia Resnick, born in Brooklyn, studied photography at NYU, Cooper Union, and CalArts. As a young woman photographer, she photographed many of the downtown personalities that populated the New York City underground art and music scene in the 1970s and ’80s, which included Johnny Thunders, Richard Hell, John Belushi, William Burroughs, and others. ART/new york spoke with her in 2020 in her Greenwich Village apartment about her life as a photographer and her new book Punks, Poets, & Provocateurs, a collection of her long running Bad Boys series in which she took portraits of men from the female gaze.
Marcia’s humor and interest in conceptual ideas is also explored as she recounts her early career making DIY photography books and staging her subject matter. Today, Marcia’s work has resurfaced and has led to re-examination of her art as an important contribution to photography.
