Jesper Haynes behind the lens


Time Out Café & Diner present a photographic exhibition by the internationally acclaimed photographer Jesper Haynes, entitled ‘Blurring the Line Between Life and Art: St Marks 1986-2006’.

This exhibition features unframed, raw images that document over twenty years of Jesper’s lifestyle and the various friends, lovers and acquaintances that he’s photographed since the 1980’s at his St Marks apartment in New York’s East Village.

Although the opening of the exhibition coincided with the Time Out Café & Diner’s 1st anniversary party on April 15, this hasn’t been the first time that the names Time Out and Haynes have come into contact with each other.

Forty-two years ago, Jesper’s father – writer and philosopher Jim Haynes – helped Time Out’s founder, Tony Elliott, launch the magazine in London. Time Out – a company which began in Tony’s kitchen, and is now a global media brand that can be found in 30 cities and 23 countries. Forty-two years later, Jesper Haynes, son of Jim Haynes, comes together with Time Out in Tokyo.
