July 21 and 22: The CSC presents a SPECTACULAR weekend of photography with CHARLES GATEWOOD and THE MAYHEMS!
Saturday, July 21, 2-4PM
CHARLES GATEWOOD: The Body and Beyond—Fifty Years of Alternative Photography
$15/FREE with Purchase of Admission to the CSC Photo Club Shoot on the 22nd (see below)!
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.
Sunday, July 22, 1-3PM
