It's America's sexual underground:SM,Fetish,Tattos,Freaks,..
Gatewood's world is freakish, earthy, blunt, erotic - most of all terribly and beautifully alive. -A.D. Coleman, The New York Times.
The American photographer, Charles Gatewood, has a weakness for the "outcasts" of our society. He now presents his latest book published by Goliath Verlag - 448 pages strong, with lots of pictures. It is the most comprehensive book to be compiled on Gatewood's photos. Starting in the late sixties during the time of the protest movement and sexual revolution, to outlaws, tattoos, piercing, freaks, SM and fetish. "Badlands" is the best photo documentation America's sexual underground has to offer: tough, blunt, erotic and already a cult.
