John Rynski photos of DP from 1986

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Paper Magazine is doing a piece on me for their September issue and asked if I could supply them with some old photographs from the past 20 years. I lost all traces of my past with the Chelsea Storage incident and so I asked them to contact my old friend John Rynski. He was my neighbor in NYC for about 13 years. Here are two that he found from 1986.

John and I shared this courtyard at 293 West 11th Street. I loved those Azzedine shoes.

John, thank you for taking the time to go through your archives and to scan these.
