Synopsis: Celebrated and revered by artists, the work of Peter Hujar remains something of a public secret, but his photographs dealing with sex and eroticism, made between the years 1969 and 1986, have come to define a certain era in New York. Today they are widely considered to be his finest and most radical work. Hujar?s view of the human body is uninhibited and uncompromising, but his poignant explorations of sexuality and desire also project a universal humanity; as Nan Goldin said of Hujar?s nudes, "Looking at his photographs of nude men, even of a naked baby boy, is the closest I ever came to experience what it is to inhabit male flesh." This monograph, published in conjunction with an exhibition at Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, is the first to deal specifically with Hujar?s photographs of love and lust. Captured in deeply textured black and white, these photographs present a view of human relationships that encompasses both the tender and taboo. This volume also contains an interview with author Fran Lebowitz from 1989, and newly commissioned essays by Vince Aletti and Stephen Koch.
Peter Hujar (1934?1987) was born in Trenton, New Jersey and moved to Manhattan to work in the magazine, advertising and fashion industries. He documented the vibrant cultural scene of downtown New York throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In 1976, he published Portraits in Life and Death, with an introduction by Susan Sontag. Hujar died of AIDS in 1987.

About the Author: The Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, founded in 1979 by Jeffrey Fraenkel, has established itself as one of the leading photography galleries in the United States by presenting the work of such seminal artists as Diane Arbus, Carelton Watkins and Garry Winogrand. Fraenkel has also produced some of the medium's finest catalogues and books, including "Lee Friedlander: The Little Screens", "Robert Adams: Turning Back" and "Richard Avedon: Made in France".

Vince Aletti writes about photography for "Aperture" magazine, "Modern Painters", the "New Yorker", and "Photograph". He is the recipient of the 2005 Infinity Award for writing from the International Center of Photography.

Stephen Koch is the author of "The Modern Library Writer's Workshop: A Guide to the Craft of Fiction"; "The Breaking Point: Hemingway, Dos Passos, and the Murder of Jose Robles"; "Double Lives: Spies and Writers in the Secret Soviet War of Ideas Against the West"; and other books. He previously taught creative writing at Columbia and Princeton universities for nearly twenty years.

Peter Hujar was born in Trenton, New Jersey, in 1934, and lived and worked in New York City's East Village from the age of 16 until his death in 1987. A central figure in the downtown cultural scene in the 1970s and early 80s, Hujar influenced many of today's most celebrated photographers. Nan Goldin has said that his work, 'like that of so few photographers, can't be forgotten and becomes even deeper and more compelling over time.' Published compilations include Portraits in Life and Death, Peter Hujar: A Retrospective, and Animals and Nudes, and his photographs are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
