Paige Powell came to New York from Portland, Oregon in 1980, she quickly became a fixture in the downtown art scene, a close confidante of Andy Warhol and a member of his inner circle, including the likes of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, whom she dated. Paige photographed the everyday activities around her, capturing the most profound moments of art, culture and nightlife that were happening near the end of the 20th Century. Observing, documenting and participating in this unique time of vanguard culture that was New York in the 1980s.
