In November 1982, a 24-year-old, career budding Keith Haring climbed into his bathtub to be lensed by photographer and friend, Don Herron. Appearing for the camera half-naked, the resulting image gives us access to Haring in a moment of blissful intimacy, in what is now arguably one of the most personal portraits of Haring ever taken. Everything from the bathroom’s walls that crawl with Haring’s iconic raving men to the rubber duck that floats near his waist hint at a young artist whose innocence was beginning to merge with the intensity of the outer East Village art scene which he would soar into just years later.

It’s this intimacy that transcends Don Herron’s entire Tub Shots series which consists of 65 portraits of famous artists in their bathtubs: a space the photographer liked for its arc and its art historical references. The series, which has remained largely hidden until now, will go on show at New York’s Daniel Cooney gallery from September 13 – November 3. “The Haring image is my favorite,” reflects curator Daniel Cooney. “There is a sweetness to the photograph and of course we know that he quickly developed as a hugely successful artist then died very young. It speaks volumes for Haring’s generation.”

“This work has never been shown in such depth, so it will be a new discovery for most audiences. I hope that people will understand the subtexts of community, loss and perseverance” – Daniel Cooney
