Gatewood’s world is freakish, earthy, blunt, erotic — most of all, terribly and beautifully alive. -The New York Times
“One of the best 100 photography books ever printed” -Bill Pierce
Gatewood, Charles and Burroughs, William
New York: Strawberry Hill, 1975
Original photo-illustrated edition with stiff, paper wrappers, B&W photographs by Charles Gatewood. (Cover is a little rubbed and marked, slight bumping to corners, a very good copy.)
First edition of Gatewood’s second published collection, Inscribed on the title page by Gatewood: ‘For Ann Arlen – a fine time in Woodstock – Charles Gatewood’.
Ann Arlen was a radical videomaker of the early 1970s. The text accompanying Gatewood’s images is drawn from The Exterminator, The Wild Boys and The Ticket That Exploded, all by William Burroughs.
Charles Gatewood, ‘the family photographer of the sexual underground’, shot several early covers for Rolling Stone, as well as the 1970s ‘Wall Street’ series. This collection set his house style, capturing the confederacy of outsiders with an approving gaze and an exhilarating splash of sleaze.
