Charles Gatewood Photographs. The Body & Beyond

by Charles Gatewood

Publication: Charles Gatewood & Flash Publications, 1993, San Francisco

First edition. Quarto. Limited to 2000 copies of which this is number 302. Signed by the author on the title page. Black cloth, titles in silver on the front cover n. p. (64 pp.), illustrated with black and white photographs taken from the 1960's onward. Initially considered an eccentric, Gatewood's photographs depicting public nudity, blatant exhibitionism, full body tattoos and body piercing were a prophetic precursor of much of our current social standards regarding the human body and sexuality. Fine in dust jacket with light wear to spine ends, a small closed tear to top edge of rear cover panel, and light wear to the corners and extremities.
