Started in 1969 by Steve Lawrence and Peter Hujar, Newspaper [later The Picture Newspaper] was a conceptual art paper without words - dedicated to photography by New York legends such as Richard Avedon, Ralph Gibson, Annie Leibovitz, Bill Cunningham, Peter Hujar, Man Ray and stars such as Mick Jagger, Divine, Patti Smith, Grace Jones, and more. With boundary pushing graphic design and layouts with a queer sensibility and emphasis on media subversion, this paper is scarce and vibrant. This issue features photographs and collages by Peter Hujar, May Wilson, Peter Beard, Ruspoli Rodriguez, and others.
