GATEWOOD, Charles. My Secret Life.
[San Francisco, CA]: Self-published, 2013. First edition. Unpaginated. Unique volume of 42 intimate colour photographic prints of Charles Gatewood and his favourite ‘girlfriends’. Gatewood , was a boundary-pushing photographer who mapped, provocatively and disturbingly, the subcultures of strippers, sex-club devotees, bikers, body piercers and fetishists. Gatewood often described himself as an anthropologist with a camera, venturing forth into forbidden territory and gathering evidence of strange, wonderful, ecstatic practices. A personal look into the private life of Charles Gatewood. A fine example.
