Peter Hujar: Love & Lust

Published by Fraenkel Gallery
Introduction by Jeffrey Fraenkel. Text by Vince Aletti, Stephen Koch. Interview with Fran Lebowitz.

Featured image, "Couples for New York Scenes, Michael Fajans and Sheila Raj" (1969), is reproduced from <I>Peter Hujar: Love & Lust</I>.Celebrated and revered by artists, the work of Peter Hujar remains something of a public secret, but his photographs dealing with sex and eroticism, made between the years 1969 and 1986, have come to define a certain era in New York. Today they are widely considered to be his finest and most radical work. Hujarís view of the human body is uninhibited and uncompromising, but his poignant explorations of sexuality and desire also project a universal humanity; as Nan Goldin said of Hujarís nudes, "Looking at his photographs of nude men, even of a naked baby boy, is the closest I ever came to experience what it is to inhabit male flesh." This monograph, published in conjunction with an exhibition at Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, is the first to deal specifically with Hujarís photographs of love and lust. Captured in deeply textured black and white, these photographs present a view of human relationships that encompasses both the tender and taboo. This volume also contains an interview with author Fran Lebowitz from 1989, and newly commissioned essays by Vince Aletti and Stephen Koch.
Peter Hujar (1934Ė1987) was born in Trenton, New Jersey and moved to Manhattan to work in the magazine, advertising and fashion industries. He documented the vibrant cultural scene of downtown New York throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In 1976, he published Portraits in Life and Death, with an introduction by Susan Sontag. Hujar died of AIDS in 1987.

Helen Molesworth

What Hujar captures is the moment of the ego's suspension, in pleasure, through eros, via love.

Peter Hujar: Love & Lust

Peter Hujar: Love & LustFeatured image, "Felix, Clyde, Ronnie, and Manny" (1976), is reproduced from Peter Hujar: Love & Lust, released just last week and already one of the most coveted books on our list this season. In a moving 1989 conversation with Peter Sokolowski, published inside the book, Fran Lebowitz describes Hujar. "He was an insider. What connects all his photographs is that every single person he photographed, every single person that he was interested in, each of his friends, was a misfit. Thatís why those pictures are inside. Itís true of the children; itís true of the drag queens. For someone who had so much distance in real life, Peter had no distance from his subjects. Thereís no irony in his photographs, thereís no contempt, thereís no slumming, thereís no . . . curiosity. He was not curious about those people; he was not judgmental the way I am." continue to blog
