Peter Hujar: Lost Downtown

Featured image, titled "Candy Darling on Her Deathbed" (1973) is reproduced from Peter Hujar: Lost Downtown, one of our Top 10 Holiday Gift Books for Photography Lovers, 2016. An exquisitely produced book in every way, Lost Downtown encapsulates in just 20 iconic photographs the liberated gay and trans art and intellectual scene of 1970s NYC. "Peter saw" his subjects, Vince Aletti writes, "got them, with an understanding that was beyond words. Peter loved a fabulous façade, but he was only happy when he could get past it, dig deeper, and connect."
