Photographs 1971-2006

Published by Fotografisk Center Photographic Center.
Text by Annie Proulx, Cary Loren, Robert Frank.

Over the past 35 years, writes Annie Proulx (author of Brokeback Mountain and The Shipping News) in her introduction to this retrospective look at the photographic oeuvre of Jeffrey Silverthorne (born 1946), "Silverthorne has photographed authority figures, nudes, prostitutes, prisoners, illegal immigrants, border bars and cheap hotel rooms, carnival denizens, people in the fringe worlds of American society, moribund animals, himself and the dead. He is internationally known for the postmortem genre he pioneered, photographs of the dead that shocked and repelled even as they fascinated." Framed in stark and uncompromising compositions, Silverthorne's subjects often regard the viewer with a defiant indifference; his work melds portraiture with a kind of detached photodocumentary impulse la Diane Arbus. In exploring marginal characters and milieux, he confronts us with our own sense of disgust and the grotesque. This volume also includes a contribution by Robert Frank and an interview by Detroit rocker Cary Loren.

Jeffrey Silverthorne: Boystown, the Perfume of DesireJeffrey Silverthorne: Boystown, the Perfume of Desire

Published by Galeri Wolfsen.
Text by Anne Biroleau-Lemagny, Jon Hendricks. Edited by Lars Schwander.

In Nuevo Laredo, just south of the U.S.-Mexico border, complexes of sex clubs called Boystowns cater to American men, and a few Mexicans, who wish to watch women take off their clothes and perhaps to pay for sex with one of them. Photographer Jeffrey Silverthorne (born 1946), who has in the past made photographs of landscapes, still lifes, portraits of transvestites and of dead bodies in a morgue, photographed the women who sell their bodies nightly in the Mexican establishments for wages that far exceed what they could earn in the local maquiladoras. Lurid and unsettling, Boystown: The Perfume of Desire presents 56 color and 34 black-and-white images. "On a simplistic and juvenile level," Silverthorne writes, "a Boystown is a celebration of life, a candy store of flesh, with any psychological or medical consequences deferred. On an adult level, Boystown is a direct observation of a spiritual poverty and economic failure that both countries and cultures share."
