I was honored to meet photographer Marcus Leatherdale in 2019 at his Out of the Shadows show at Throckmorton. I'm saddened to hear that he died yesterday, April 22, at 69.

Trey Speegle has an excellent obituary up at World of Wonder, in which he writes about Leatherdale's early years as Robert Mapplethorpe's boyfriend and his indispensable “Hidden Identities” series in Details.

Along with Madonna — who he shot at the suggestion of her BFF Martin Burgoyne, who was his intended subject — he shot everyone from Andy Warhol to Keith Haring, Dianne Brill, Divine and more.
