Descripción del producto
Peter Hujar was an underground legend in the downtown ethos of New York in the 1970s and 1980s...his portraits draw on a balance between Avedon's existential minimalism and Diane Arbus's psychological complexity. Hujar's work, along with that of his younger contemporary Robert Mapplethorpe, reflects the deep current of sexual change that arose so powerfully to the surface in the 1970s and '80s.--Philip Gefter "Time, Best Photobooks of 2016 "
...the photographer who defined downtown New York.--Simon Bowcock "The Guardian "
Reseña del editor
It’s a vanished world, and Peter Hujar was right there in it. The Lower East Side between 1972 and 1985 ― filled with artists, wannabe artists and hangers-on ― was a community of the misbegotten gathered from every town in America and relocated in the mean streets between Broadway and the Bowery. Nothing but their talent, their flamboyance, their rank gender-bending mockery and their arch irony supported them. Some made their names. Many came to grief. A few made art. In those days, the gutted streets of the Lower East Side looked like a war zone. Everyone lived and worked on the extreme outer margins of money and art, penniless and unknown. As a community, Downtown was a counterstatement to the rich New York of the banks, museums, media, corporations … and the art world itself. That Downtown is forever gone. Time, gentrification, disease and death have taken their toll and turned this vibrant epoch into a chapter of art history. But before it vanished, its extravagant cast sat for Peter Hujar’s camera ― and is now alive again in front of our eyes. Featured among others: Joe Brainard, William Burroughs, Remy Charlip, Edwin Denby, Divine, Ray Johnson, Fran Lebowitz, Charles Ludlum, Susan Sontag, Paul Thek, John Waters, Robert Wilson, David Wojnarowicz.

(1976, long out-of-print). Indeed, I would not have minded at all a fresh, all-new production of that book in its totality, but there were apparently some internal issues that prevented this from being realized. And it would also have been nice to reproduce, as an Appendix, Susan Sontag'es brilliant Introductory Essay, in the same manner that it is HER iconic portrait that graces the cover, an exquisite choice that could not be improved upon. But this is a minor quibble. The production values of this collection are superior and exemplary in every respect, as one has come to expect of German photography book publishing, BRAVO!
