Kathy Acker’s new tattoo, 1980s, London
Kathy Acker in London in the 1980s
Kathy Acker, an American writer living in London was called ‘the high priestess of punk’ amongst other things. As I worked for several London based magazines our paths crossed and I asked her if I could take her photograph. For a short time we were friends, then I left London and so did she. A few years later she succumbed to cancer.
