Containing many previously unpublished photos, Disco takes the viewer on an access-all-areas tour of late-70s New York nightlife. Bill Bernstein’s eye was drawn not to the celebrities, but the unknown men and women who were transformed by the nightclub haze, and this is one reason his photos feel so authentic. As James Hillard writes in his foreword, ‘These shots capture the very essence of what going out was, is, and should be, all about.’ All featured photos were shot by Bernstein from 1978-80. Manhattan was the epicentre of the movement. And Bill Bernstein captured it all.
