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.
