Studio 54 was the world’s most famous and exalted discothèque. It opened in 1977 at 254 West 54th Street in New York City at a time when disco music was enjoying its frenetic peak. The establishment attracted the celebrities of the day and a carefully filtered mix of guests spreading their stardom. On the Studio 54 dance floor, everyone was a star. Hasse Persson spent hundreds of nights at Studio 54 between 1977 and 1980. His pictures have become legendary. Now, they are published in book form for the first time. Studio 54 can be seen as a return visit to an ultra permissive epoch and a social phenomenon. Interest in New York’s Studio 54 has today – 35 years after its peak – reached almost mythic proportions.
