Walt Cessna, an NYC clubkid who became a teen phenom in publishing (his zines The Key and Stop are collector's items) and was a photographer and artist closely associated with the downtown scene, has died at 52.

Trey Speegle, a friend and former boyfriend of Cessna's, writes:

He was brilliant and complicated and like many creatives, his own worst enemy. He was constantly writing and photographing and musing and telling us all what was “correct”, a term he used to describe anything he deemed brilliant and worthy of praise.

Check Out My Q&A with Carleton Carpenter!
