He was once crowned the "The Pope of Trash" by William Burroughs. Waters has a new book and art exhibit, which began when he started photographing video stills off his television screen. Many of the stills are collected in his new book John Waters: Change of Life. He also has his first major museum exhibit of the same name at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, which runs through April 18.
