Matthias Hamann: You WouldMatthias Hamann: You Would

Published by Spector Books.

The title of Matthias Hamann’s new photo book is taken from a piece of graffiti found on a trash bin in New York, which the artist photographed on his wanderings through the American metropolis. You Would can be read as a challenge or an invitation, or as a possible instruction for anyone who surrenders to change and steps into the light of the camera. The author takes a diaristic approach to recording his impressions as a flâneur in New York and Berlin, mixing the photographs he takes with staged portraits of the queer scene. You Would shows intimate moments and poses from a social circle with an alternative take on life.

Alvin Baltrop: The PiersAlvin Baltrop: The Piers

Published by TF Editores.
Edited by James Reid, Tom Watt. Foreword by Glenn O'Brien.

Powerful, lyrical and controversial, Alvin Baltrop's photographs are a groundbreaking exploration of clandestine gay culture in New York in the 1970s and 80s. During that era, the derelict warehouses beneath Manhattan's West Side piers became a lawless, forgotten part of the city that played host to gay cruising, drug smuggling, prostitution and suicides.
Baltrop documented this scene, unflinchingly and obsessively capturing everything from fleeting naked figures in mangled architectural environments to scenes of explicit sex and police raids on the piers. His work is little known and underpublished--mainly due to its unflinching subject matter--but while often explicit, his photographs are on a par with those of Nan Goldin, Peter Hujar and Enrique Metenides.
While the outside world saw New York as the glamorous playground of Studio 54, Warhol's gang and the disco era, Baltrop photographed the city's gritty flipside; his work is an important part of both gay culture and the history of New York itself. This clothbound volume compiles the Piers series in one definitive monograph, a powerful tribute to a long-forgotten world at the city's dilapidated margins.
Alvin Baltrop (1948-2004) was born in the Bronx, New York, and spent most of his life living and working in New York City. From 1969 to 1972, he served in the Vietnam War and began photographing his comrades. Upon his return, he enrolled in the School of the Visual Arts in New York, where he studied from 1973 to 1975. After working various jobs--vendor, jewelry designer, printer--he settled on the banks of Manhattan's West Side, where he would produce the bulk of his photographic output.

All the PeopleAll the People

Published by Kerber.
Text by Emily Besa. Photographs by Bernd Ott.

All the People explores the experience of the gender spectrum on a personal level, with photographs of individuals living in Amsterdam, Berlin, London, Los Angeles and New York who express and define their gender on their own terms. The book’s subjects identify as transgender, gender queer, drag performers or do not identify themselves with any label at all. All the People collects their stories and their portraits--as they wish to be represented.

Writer Emily Besa (born 1974) conducted interviews with the subjects, and photographer Bernd Ott (born 1970) shot their portraits in locations of their choosing, collaboratively creating intimate, sensitive portraits in words and images. “If there is something we ultimately hoped for,” Ott reflected, “it was that people realize how much we all share once we look past the labels we create.”

Pansy BeatPansy Beat

Published by KrimsKrams Island LLC.

Pansy Beat was a short-lived fanzine published by Michael Economy in New York from 1989 to 1990, totaling five quarterly issues. Each issue’s 50-some black-and-white pages documented the exuberant downtown gay and drag club scene of that era and included one free condom. The zine offered a glimpse into an exhilarating alternative universe during the darkest years of the AIDS crisis. Interviews profiled downtown personalities on the verge of global stardom, many still working to this day. Artists such as Lady Bunny, Billy Erb, Connie Fleming, Kenny Kenny, Lady Miss Kier and Larry Tee first shared their memorable selves in print on the pages of Pansy Beat. The zine also featured interviews with Edwige Belmore, Leigh Bowery and Quentin Crisp. This book celebrates Pansy Beat’s brief but influential life, including a reprinting of all five issues in their original format, previously unseen photographs by staff photographer Michael Fazakerley, new full-color artwork by some of the original contributors, plus new essays and interviews. Book design by Jan Wandrag.

Edgewise: A Picture of Cookie MuellerEdgewise: A Picture of Cookie Mueller

Published by Bbooks Verlag.
By Chloé Griffin. Contributions by John Waters, Mink Stole, Gary Indiana, et al.

Cookie Mueller (1949-1989) was a firecracker, a cult figure, a wild child, a writer, a go-go dancer, a mother and a queer icon. A child of suburban 1950s Maryland, she made her name first as an actress in the films of John Waters, and then as an art critic and columnist, a writer of hilarious stories and a maven of New York's downtown art world. Edgewise, by Berlin-based actress and writer Chloé Griffin, tells the story of Cookie's life through an oral history composed of more than 80 interviews with the people who knew her, including John Waters, Mink Stole, Gary Indiana, Sharon Niesp, Max Mueller, Linda Yablonsky, Richard Hell, Amos Poe and Raymond Foye. The contributors take us from the late-1960s artist communes of Baltimore to 1970s Provincetown and New York, through 1980s Berlin and Positano. Along with the text, Edgewise includes artwork, unpublished photographs and archival material and photography by Philip-Lorca diCorcia, David Armstrong, Robert Mapplethorpe, Peter Hujar and others.

Hugh Steers: The Complete PaintingsHugh Steers: The Complete Paintings

Published by Visual AIDS.
Introduction by Dale Peck. Text by Cynthia Carr, James Smalls. Preface by Nelson Santos.

Hugh Steers: The Complete Paintings is the first publication on the career of American figurative painter Hugh Steers (1962–95), who died of AIDS at the age of 32. Committed to figurative painting at a time when it had fallen out of favor, Steers painted expressionist-realist narratives of a life shadowed by isolation and mortality, yet infused with wry humor, camp and what Steers himself called a “gorgeous bleakness.” Steers consciously merged AIDS, intimacy and the body into the traditional vocabulary of painting. With his vulnerable subjects depicted in hospital rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, Steers engaged with radical ideas about male intimacy, queer politics, fragility and health care at the height of the AIDS crisis. Featuring more than 600 full-color images of Steers’ paintings on canvas and paper, this volume provides a long-overdue, expansive view of the artist’s career and impact.

Cass Bird: RewildingCass Bird: Rewilding

Published by Damiani.
Text by Sally Singer, Jack Halberstam.

Over the past ten years, Cass Bird (born 1974) has established herself as one of the foremost portraitists of contemporary America. Her photographs of young women and men casually draw attention to the fluid expression of gender roles and androgyny in today’s youth culture, and to what she has described as “the convergence of alternative lifestyles with accepted conceptions of motherhood, nurturing and family.” In the summers of 2009 and 2010, Bird traveled to Sassafrass, Tennessee, with a group of young women, a wardrobe of diaphanous dresses and a camera. These women--studio assistants, friends, or women cast from the streets of New York--had been selected by Bird for their ease with their sexual identities, but also for their relative awkwardness in front of the lens. The result was Rewilding, a joyous portrait of modern femininity and a frolicking celebration of women’s camaraderie.

Daniel Schumann: International OrangeDaniel Schumann: International Orange

Published by Kerber.
Edited by Daniel Schumann, Christof Kerber.

In 2011, having been awarded a Fulbright, German photographer Daniel Schumann (born 1981) moved to San Francisco to start a masters degree in photography. He was immediately taken by the city, and fell in love with the diversity and openness of its inhabitants. In International Orange, Schumann portrays same-sex families and couples living and working in San Francisco. The work originated from the artist’s desire to express the importance of the metropolis for the gay rights movement, while also examining the theme of family from a new perspective--an examination he had already begun in his previous book, Princesses and Football Stars. Through his portraits, Schumann’s project reveals the remarkable ease with which heterosexual and homosexual families live together and coexist in San Francisco. International Orange is a declaration of love for the city, its social freedom and its citizens.

Memories That Smell Like GasolineMemories That Smell Like Gasoline

Published by Artspace Books.
By David Wojnarowicz.

Not content to be a tremendous photographer, painter, filmmaker, performance artist and activist David Wojnarowicz (1954-92) was also the author of three classic books: Close to the Knives, The Waterfront Journals and Memories That Smell Like Gasoline, now back in print from Artspace. This volume collects four tales--"Into the Drift and Sway," "Doing Time in a Disposable Body," "Spiral" and the title story--interspersed with ink drawings by the artist. "Sometimes it gets dark in here behind these eyes I feel like the physical equivalent of a scream. The highway at night in the headlights of this speeding car speeding is the only motion that lets the heart unravel and in the wind of the road the two story framed houses appear one after the other like some cinematic stage set..." From these opening sentences of the book (in "Into the Drift and Sway"), Wojnarowicz lets loose a salvo of explicit gay sexual reverie harshly lit by the New York cityscape.

Warhol's QueensWarhol's Queens

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Henriette Dedichen.

Warhol’s Queens combines the artist’s portraits of actual female royalty with images of drag queens. For Warhol (1928–1987), both these genuine and fake queens epitomized idealized femininity, devoting their lives to presenting an unattainably glittering pageantry to the public for (not all too) close inspection. This volume juxtaposes Warhol’s Polaroids of Princess Caroline of Monaco, Farah Diba Pahlavi and the then-Crown Princess Sonja, of Norway, with drag queens, whom Warhol characterized as “living testimony to the way women used to want to be, the way some people still want them to be and the way some women still actually want to be.” The intense faces with their exceptionally colored lips, eyes and hair are both aloof and strangely intimate. With its in-depth scholarly essays, this book is essential for fans of Warhol’s portraiture and camp culture. With text by Hubertus Butin, Clément Chéroux, Henriette Dedichen, Dietmar Elger, and Matt Wrbican.

There Was Always a Place to CrashThere Was Always a Place to Crash

Al Kaplan's Provincetown 1961–1966

Published by Letter16 Press.
Introduction by Brett Sokol.

There Was Always a Place to Crash: Al Kaplan’s Provincetown 1961–1966 features previously unseen photographs of Provincetown, Massachusetts’ early 1960s bohemian milieu, from future Andy Warhol Factory film star Rene Ricard to the libertine scene unfolding inside gay rights pioneer Prescott Townsend’s legendary treehouse, where countless "washashores" (including filmmaker John Waters) would stay upon first hitting Provincetown. The end result is an intimate look at a key countercultural period in American history—one whose often overlooked nuances still resonate today in both the art world and throughout the gay community. All of the volume’s images have been carefully transferred from the late Miami photographer Al Kaplan’s original 35mm black-and-white negatives. With an introduction by award-winning Miami arts journalist Brett Sokol, There Was Always a Place to Crash is one of the first records of this pre-Stonewall era in Provincetown.

Greg Reynolds: Jesus DaysGreg Reynolds: Jesus Days

Published by Bywater Bros. Editions.
Text by Greg Reynolds.

From 1978 to 1983, Greg Reynolds served as a youth minister for an evangelical Christian organization, spreading the teachings of the Bible and encouraging young Christians in their faith. When a missionary gave him a 35mm camera, Reynolds--an untrained photographer--began to take pictures of his close-knit community. What emerged was a photo diary--sunlit kodachromes show happy youths strumming guitars at Christian camp, missionary trips to Central America and short-shorted men smiling on the beach during a religious canvassing trip. Reynolds himself appeared the evangelical poster boy throughout this period: he prayed, read the Bible and refrained from sex. It wasn't until 1983, when he resigned from the organization and came out as gay, that he was able to fully pursue photography and reevaluate his life. The resulting paperback, assembled retrospectively, is a unique document of 1970s-era religious America, its images a powerful account of illusion and disillusion.

Nan Goldin: Diving for PearlsNan Goldin: Diving for Pearls

Published by Steidl.
Text by Nan Goldin, Lotte Dinse, Glenn O’Brien.

In her newest work, Nan Goldin merges her deep admiration for the artworks of the past with a lifelong dedication to her most immediate circle of friends. Invited by the Louvre, she photographed artworks of her choice at the museum and, guided by aesthetic and associative considerations, connected them to earlier photographs of her friends and lovers. In this way she not only draws inspiration from the rich sources of art history but revisits her own oeuvre of the last 40 years. The striking similarities between the two different pictorial worlds exert an intense dynamic on the viewer. The series, which yielded over 400 photographs, was shown for the first time in its full scope at the Kestnergesellschaft in Hannover, Germany. For this occasion, Diving for Pearls was conceived as an independent artist book which, alongside Goldin’s newest work "Saints," contains a selection of photographs that have never been published before.
Nan Goldin was born in Washington, DC, in 1953 and is one of the most eminent female photographers of our times. She studied at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Since 1982 she has visited and worked in Berlin on a regular basis. She received a Hasselblad Photography Award in 2007. Goldin lives in Berlin, New York and Paris.
