The Daniel Nicoletta Photographs

Published by Reel Art Press.
Introduction by Chuck Mobley. Foreword by Gus Van Sant.

Glittering drag queens, gay politics and alternative theater: Nicoletta was at the heart of the gay mecca that was 1970s San Francisco

Daniel Nicoletta (born 1954) has been a leading chronicler of the LGBT civil rights movement in San Francisco over the last 40 years. This is the first book dedicated to his powerful photographs documenting the journey of the burgeoning lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender mecca that was San Francisco in the 1970s through to the present. Nicoletta is best known for his iconic images of Harvey Milk, one of the world’s first openly gay elected officials, who was assassinated by a homophobic colleague in 1978. Nicoletta portrayed glittering drag queens, the alternative theater world and the steadfast bravery of same-sex couples trying to live their lives amid often adverse cultural sea changes. Today, Nicoletta continues to document the reverberations of Milk’s legacy. He serves as a key point person for LGBT civil rights and Milk-related research. In 2014, one of Nicoletta’s photographs was used on a US Harvey Milk Forever stamp. LGBT: San Francisco is an essential gay history and a stunning photographic work that is not to be missed.

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.

Tom Bianchi: Fire Island PinesTom Bianchi: Fire Island Pines

Polaroids 1975-1983

Published by Damiani.
Edited by Ben Smales. Introduction by Edmund White. Text by Tom Bianchi.

Tom Bianchi’s erotic and celebratory Polaroids of magical summers on Fire Island

Growing up in the 1950s, Tom Bianchi would head into downtown Chicago and pick up 25-cent “physique” magazines at newsstands. In one such magazine, he found a photograph of bodybuilder Glenn Bishop on Fire Island. “Fire Island sounded exotic, perhaps a name made up by the photographer,” he recalls in the preface to his latest monograph. “I had no idea it was a real place. Certainly, I had no idea then that it was a place I would one day call home.” In 1970, fresh out of law school, Bianchi began traveling to New York, and was invited to spend a weekend at Fire Island Pines, where he encountered a community of gay men. Using an SX-70 Polaroid camera, Bianchi documented his friends’ lives in the Pines, amassing an image archive of people, parties and private moments. These images, published here for the first time, and accompanied by Bianchi’s moving memoir of the era, record the birth and development of a new culture. Soaked in sun, sex, camaraderie and reverie, Fire Island Pines conjures a magical bygone era.

Tom Bianchi was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from Northwestern University School of Law in 1970. He became a corporate attorney, eventually working with Columbia Pictures in New York, painting and drawing on weekends. His artwork came to the attention of Betty Parsons and Carol Dreyfuss and they gave him his first one-man painting show in 1980. In 1984, he was given his first solo museum exhibition at the Spoleto Festival. After Bianchi’s partner died of AIDS in 1988, he turned his focus to photography, producing Out of the Studio, a candid portrayal of gay intimacy. Its success led to producing numerous monographs, including On the Couch, Deep Sex and In Defense of Beauty.

Jack Pierson: The Hungry YearsJack Pierson: The Hungry Years

Published by Damiani.
Introduction by Eileen Myles. Foreword by Stephen Shore.

The ’80s photographs of Boston School veteran Jack Pierson are at once melancholy and joyous, erotic and slyly witty

The Hungry Years collects the early photographs of Jack Pierson, taken throughout the 1980s—photographs that have increasingly captured the attention of the art world since they were first editioned in 1990.

Informed in part by his artistic emergence in the era of AIDS, Pierson’s work is moored by melancholy and introspection, yet his images are often buoyed by a celebratory aura of homoeroticism, seduction and glamour. Sometimes infused with a sly sense of humor, Pierson’s work is inherently autobiographical; often using his friends as his models and referencing traditional Americana motifs, his bright yet distanced imagery reveals the undercurrents of the uncanny in the quotidian.

Fueled by the poignancy of emotional experience and by the sensations of memory, obsession and absence, Pierson’s subject is ultimately, as he states, “hope.”

For more than two decades, New York–based artist Jack Pierson (born 1960) has been using the visual languages of photography, painting, sculpture and drawing to examine intimate and emotional aspects of everyday life. Gaining recognition alongside a group of photographers known as the Boston School, Pierson explores the cultural construction of identity, including how we see and how others see us. Pierson has had numerous recent solo exhibitions and his work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among other museums worldwide.

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.

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.

Berenice Abbott: Portraits of ModernityBerenice Abbott: Portraits of Modernity

Published by Fundación MAPFRE.
Text by Estrella de Diego, Gary Van Zante, Cara Hoffman.

A superbly printed, definitive volume on the beloved American modernist photographer

This handsome publication presents legendary American photographer Berenice Abbott’s work in three categories: her portraits, photographs of the city and scientific photographs. The opening section presents Abbott’s portraits of mold-breaking individuals who changed the world from the mid-1920s onward such as Djuna Barnes, the New Yorker's Janet Flanner, Jean Cocteau and James Joyce.

The second part offers a dazzling portrait of New York which takes into account Abbott’s relations with and her fascination for the work of Eugène Atget by including an introductory group of his photographs, which she printed from his negatives.

The third and final section focuses on Abbott’s scientific photographs, which she started to produce in the late 1940s.

Berenice Abbott was undoubtedly one of the defining portraitists of New York. Shops, people, bridges, streets, interiors, famous buildings under construction seen from outside or from above (the same ones that are visible today from the highway that runs round Manhattan) together make up this portrait.

Berenice Abbott (1891–1991) was born in Springfield, Ohio. She began her photography career in 1923, as Man Ray's darkroom assistant. Her work is collected in some of the most prestigious museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art.

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.

Tom Bianchi: 63 E 9th StreetTom Bianchi: 63 E 9th Street

NYC Polaroids 1975–1983

Published by Damiani.
Text by Tom Bianchi.

Intimate erotic portraits from the Fire Island Pines photographer

In 1975 Tom Bianchi moved to New York City, working at Columbia Pictures as in-house counsel. Columbia gave Bianchi a Polaroid SX – 70 camera, which he took to the Pines on summer weekends; those pictures became the 2013 book Fire Island Pines: Polaroids 1975–1983. Now, some 44 years later, we get a first look at another extraordinary collection of Bianchi’s Polaroids, taken in his East 9th St apartment.

Whereas Fire Island offers an expansive communal experience situated on a sunny sand bar out in the Atlantic under huge open skies, Bianchi’s New York apartment was an intimate, track-lit den, a safe stage where he and his friends played out erotic night games. Playful, nostalgic and sexy, Tom Bianchi: 63 E 9th Street is an essential companion book to Fire Island Pines and an important document of urban gay life.

Tom Bianchi was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from Northwestern University School of Law in 1970. He became a corporate attorney, eventually working with Columbia Pictures in New York, painting and drawing on weekends. His artwork came to the attention of Betty Parsons and Carol Dreyfuss and they gave him his first one-man painting show in 1980. In 1984, he was given his first solo museum exhibition at the Spoleto Festival. After Bianchi’s partner died of AIDS in 1988, he turned his focus to photography, producing Out of the Studio, a candid portrayal of gay intimacy. Its success led to producing numerous monographs, including On the Couch, Deep Sex, In Defense of Beauty and Fire Island Pines.

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.
