Peter Hujar was a revered figure in the downtown New York creative scene from the 1960s until his passing in 1987 to AIDS-related illness. The photographer left behind a complex and profound body of work, best known for the texture and poignancy with which he explored decay, sexuality, death, and the life we share in common. Highly emotional yet stripped of excess, his photographs are always beautiful, although rarely in a conventional way. Hujar has been recognized posthumously as a major American photographer of the late-twentieth century. Yet his work received only marginal public recognition during his lifetime.
Includes essays by Stephen Koch and Thomas Sokolowski, plus interviews with Fran Lebowitz and Vince Aletti.
