Original large-size photograph by Kate Simon of James Chance at Radio City Music Hall, New York (1982).

B/w. 40.6x50.4cm. Inscribed by the photographer on the verso: "To Jon [Savage], with love, from Kate, May 2, 1986 'James Chance at Radio City' ".

Kate Simon later recalled the occasion: "I'd worked with James Chance when he appeared on [early 80s public access cable TV show] TV Party, where I was one of the co-hosts. James came up with the idea of being photographed at Radio City and to his credit cut through all the red tape to make it happen. In the event he and I were the only people in the whole place that day; it was amazing, just wouldn't happen these days. I had no assistant, so did the readings and light adjustments myself with the aim of retaining the amber, Deco feel. It came out pretty much how I wanted it." The photo appeared in the May 1982 issue of The Face.

Some edge and corner wear, with light creasing/rippling, o/w Very Good.
