Synopsis: In this first-ever photographic survey of gay men in America, stereotypes are laid to rest and an intimate, honest picture of contemporary gay life is revealed through stunning personal portraits and narratives.
 
Photographer Scott Pasfield traveled 54,000 miles across all fifty states over a two-year span gathering stories and documenting the lives of 140 gay men from all walks of life. At turns joyful and somber, reflective and celebratory, each narrative and image is an enlightening look into the variety of gay life in the United States.
 
Pasfield’s striking and perceptive portraits reflect the same beautiful diversity found in any sampling of our population. Each of these men is unique and whole, complex and fallible, just as we all are. They come in every size and shape, every religion, color, profession, and background. There are farmers, writers, doctors, lawyers, artists, teachers, students; there are fathers and husbands, activists, and business men. Some are successful, some are struggling, some are political, some are wealthy, some are wounded, and some are deeply content.
 
Their commonality draws from a single shared trait: their homosexuality. These are men who are attracted to men, and have chosen not to disguise that truth. For many, there have been harsh consequences to this decision, but also deep rewards. The message that prevails is one of great hope that true equality is close within our reach, if only we would grasp it.

About the Author: SCOTT PASFIELD is a New York-based portrait photographer. His work has appeared in numerous publications, from BlackBook to Fortune, Poz to Gotham. His clients include the Independent Film Channel, Time Inc., and the American Red Cross.  With a background in architecture, Pasfield's portraiture utilizes the interplay between space and subject to reveal new dimensions within each.  Combining a practiced eye and a relaxed attitude with a determination to develop meaningful projects, Pasfield is intent on making a difference through art. Gay in America will travel as an exhibition, where Pasfield, who has taught photography seminars and workshops, will also speak to communities across the country about a work that defines and contextualizes contemporary gay culture.

Book Description In diesem fotografischen Porträt homosexueller Männer der Vereinigten Staaten werden liebgewonnene Stereotypen ad acta gelegt und ein intimes, ehrliches Bild des heutigen schwulen Lebens gezeichnet. Zwei Jahre lang reiste Scott Pasfield 54 000 Meilen durch 50 Bundesstaaten, um Geschichten und Bildnisse von 140 schwulen Männern aller Couleurs und Lebensweisen zu versammeln. Seine eindringlichen und sensiblen Porträts zeigen eine faszinierende Vielfalt. Jeder dieser Männer ist einzigartig und complex, voller individueller Schwächen und Stärken. Es finden sich Bauern darunter, Schriftsteller, Ärzte, Richter, Künstler, Lehrer und Studenten, Väter und Ehemänner, Aktivisten und Geschäftsmänner. Sie alle eint jedoch eines: Sie stehen dazu, dass sie Männer lieben und verstecken es nicht. (Text engl.) 24,5 x 30 cm, 224 S., über 140 farb. Abb., geb. Bookseller Inventory # 822507
