Format: Hardcover
I believe this to be the largest collection of an amazing and often, forgotten genre in photography: Nightlife documentation; like Weegee, Patrick McMullan relentlessly documented a historical and iconic era: the 1980's. From the nightclubs to the NYC streets that once contained freedom and reckless abandonment -- he photographed the legends, the artists, the musicians, both the "some-bodies" and the "no-bodies"...It's an enormous body of work: 432 pages with well over 500 B&W photographs... an extremely important book to have in one's collection!! Great for any collector and anyone who loved or lived in the 1980's!!!

Let's just say that if you are obsessed with the 1980's and everything it represents...you will love this book!
I mean, it is the largest book I own -- filled with hundreds & hundreds of photos -- people I have always loved from Madonna & Liza Minnelli to Andy Warhol & Boy George!!
It's also filled with essays & quotes -- pretty amazing to look at...it is hard to imagine nightlife like that because it really doesn't exist now! Patrick was a lucky guy!

I wasn't really apart of the 80s, at least the "cool" 80's - especially in New York City...I was starting a career & raising my children in TX. But a friend of mine (who lives in NYC) gave me the book for my birthday last weekend and was taken to another world...a world of nightlife!
It was very exciting for me. I now wish I had taken part of that time...the parties, the freedom, etc.
The book is great.
It's an adventure...

This is a very memorable
and beautifully designed photo book.

It's exciting -- historical -- intense -- beautiful -- sad --crazy -- chaotic -- and free...it's really a million things, a million feelings...and put all onto over 400 pages!!
It's really worth owning and beyond words, the photographs speak for themselves.

I just received a copy of so8os and I couldn't love a book more...I collect photo books and have seen Patrick around town for many years photographing parties and huge VIP events here in Manhattan. He is an amazing photographer...and I had no idea that he was going to release such a beautiful book!! It is beyond FABULOUS!!

Not worth the time or the money. Oversized volume of pap. Party pictures that are extracts of magazines that you threw away years ago (or should have). A gift book that is sure to be re-gifted again and again - or exchanged for something useful.
