‘Punks, Poets & Politicians’

McKay Imaging Photography Studio and Gallery in Red Bank has opened a photography exhibition, “Punks, Poets & Politicians, Photographs by Marcia Resnick.”

John Belushi, September 1981 John Belushi, September 1981 McKay Imaging Photography Studio and Gallery is on the second floor at 12 Monmouth St., Red Bank.

Resnick is a New York City photographer and educator. Her images have been shown internationally in galleries and are in major museum collections.

Her work has been published in numerous counterculture books and periodicals, from the Paris Review to Rolling Stone, as well as in her self-published artist books and her photo-autobiography, “Re-visions.”

It is their quality of “badness” that renders Resnick’s subjects formidable to their opponents and endearing to their admirers.

Her confrontational images echo the audacity of punk music and punk style. The art, literary and rock ‘n’ roll worlds feature prominently in her work, which includes portraits of such enfants terribles as Andy Warhol, William Burroughs, John Belushi and Mick Jagger.
