Death In Denim

IT could be an ad for denim in a campaign for, lets say, Lee. It got all the elements: Hipness (vinyl laying in the carpet, fixie parked in the hall, vintage adidas), Sex (part of an ass showing), Controversy (bondage).  But it is not.  Dutch photographer Peter Martens took this picture while he was on tour with the homicide division of the NYPD in the year 1977. They found this poor fellow in an apartment in Harlem.
