    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).
