Amsterdam: 1986 / 2017. Five black and white prints - after Ilford negatives. Detailed in pen by the photographer (on reverse side). The 4 photo-diptychs and 1 full-size photo show Haring at work, discussing his work, drawing, and surrounded by his ghetto blaster, cassette tapes, and spray cans. Printed on matte 300 gms paper. All in a fine original condition. 

In 1986, New York graffiti artist Keith Haring was invited to exhibit by the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. He was asked to spray a velum with his characteristic 'playing men'. This velum has been shown again recently at the Stedelijk Museum. Photo press followed Haring at work, and these images are part of a photo shoot with Chris Reinewald, then journalist for 'Plug' - a cultural youth magazine.
