cf. David Wojnarowicz: Rimbaud in New York 1978-79 (New Haven, 2004)
Originally published in Soho News in 1980, the photographer rediscovered this body of work while preparing David Wojnarowicz: Tongues of Flame, his first retrospective which opened at the University of Illinois in January 1990. While the series was not exhibited, four of its images were illustrated in the accompanying catalogue. Wojnarowicz presented Arthur Rimbaud in New York for the first time at a P. P. O. W., Inc., November 1990 exhibition, for which prints were specifically produced.
Lifetime prints from this series are rare. As stated in the catalogue, the present photograph is the only print from the projected edition of 3. Another lifetime print, not from the edition but likely a gift from the artist, has recently been located.
