Dec 8, 2015 - 4:30 PM

Photographer and frequent BJT contributor Bill Bernstein has been garnering accolades for his new coffee-table book, which documents a unique period in New York City nightlife. Called Disco: The Bill Bernstein Photographs, the book contains striking and memorable images from 1978–80, a time when the city’s disco clubs were impacting music, fashion, and popular culture.

Bernstein, whose photos have accompanied numerous BJT stories and appeared on many of our covers, was personal photographer to Sir Paul McCartney for 15 years. He collaborated with the ex-Beatle on the 2004 book Each One Believing: Paul McCartney Off Stage, On Stage and Back Stage.
