Bill Costa, 1944-1995

Bill Costa (1944-1995) was raised in Massachusetts and educated at an art college there , but 
moved to New York for a corporate job.  At age 31 he gave that up to pursue photography 
full time, and he was heavily influenced by both the financial nadir of the City and the 
AIDS epidemic.  Some of his photos of men in ruined buildings have become 
almost iconic.  We start the series with The Holy Trinity from 1988.
