Bill King - Photographer
I'm a bit surprised to see there's not a thread on him yet. He shot some great photographs in the 60s, 70s and 80s. This month it is 19 years ago since he passed away from complications of AIDS. He is featured as one of the most underrated photographers at popphoto.com. (photos from popphoto.com).

Today, however, King is barely mentioned in books and other histories of photography and fashion. “He has been erased,” says Naudet. “He needs to be remembered.”

Apparently he has a ton of Gia C. pictures that can't be released due to legal reasons! Waaaaah!
