Peter hujar love and lust book
Love & Lust | Fraenkel GalleryHis iconic photograph Candy Darling on Her Deathbed , not included in this show could stem only from the access made possible by a close connection to his subject. A sense of physical and emotional relatedness is expressed in works that range from the chaste, clothed portrait Merce Cunningham and John Cage Seated , , which shows the famous couple with loose smiles, to warm rumpled images such as Lynn Davis, Nude with Pillow , , and David Wojnarowicz Reclining II , , in which the sitters meet the eye of the photographer with calm directness. The subjects of the more explicitly sexual images are lesser known, and these men are shown lost in the reverie of arousal and release; their connection to the photographer shifts away—complicating the sexual charge of these works. They become more formal than erotic. These photographs—portraits of masturbating men—are about capturing physical experience. Peter Hujar, Self-Portrait Standing , Self-Portrait Standing, , depicts the handsome artist posing in just a jock strap against a blank wall.
