Soho Photo Gallery has published a beautiful and important book commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in light of the creative photography it inspired. Edited by Bill Travis and Larry Davis, Photography After Stonewall consists of work by 23 living photographers, artist statements, and scholarly essays.
The themes include Body/Gender/Sexuality, Home, Family, Gays in the Military, AIDS, Fetish, Pulp and Fantasy. Fifty years ago, much of this would have been unthinkable. Among its many accomplishments, the Stonewall Riots opened up a new area for artistic expression.
Photography After Stonewall highlights the work of Ronaldo Aguiar, Berena Alvarez, James Bidgood, Vincent Cianni, Joyce Culver, John Paul Evans, Sunil Gupta, David Hilliard, Robert Kalman, Rivka S. Katvan, David Lebe, Patrick McNabb, Slava Mogutin, Barbara Nitke, Lissa Rivera, Jeff Sheng, Pacifico Silano, Sage Sohier, Sam Stoich, Bill Travis, Arthur Tress, Annie Tritt, and Sophia Wallace.
Two scholarly essays, by Claude Summers and Nick Morgan, examine the legacy of Stonewall from a variety of perspectives, historic, cultural, political, and photographic. The book was designed by gallery photographer, Robert Kalman.
