CHARLES GATEWOOD: The Body and Beyond—Fifty Years of Alternative Photography
The Center for Sex and Culture
July 21st 2-4 PM
1349 Mission St. San Francisco (btwn 9th & 10th)
When Charles Gatewood began photographing America’s sexual underground in the early 1960s, he was considered by many to be an obsessed eccentric whose concerns were extremely marginal. Today, however, as public nudity, blatant exhibitionism, full body tattooing and piercing, and various forms of sadomasochistic excess have entered mainstream culture, Gatewood’s photographs appear not only historically significant, but also uncannily prophetic.
In his lecture, Charles will show his favorite photographs, describe how he built his erotic archive, and will answer all questions. Please join us for this special evening honoring Charles Gatewood’s achievements as a family photographer of our radical sex community.
*** Also, don’t forget to save the date! Gatewood will be teaching a special session at the CSC Photo Club Sept 16th per Folsom Action!
