About

Digital C-print Signed, dated, and numbered, verso 15 x 15 inches, image (Edition of 25) 22 x 22 inches, image (Edition of 15) 31 x 31 inches, image (Edition of 15) This photograph is offered by ClampArt, located in New York City. A stylistic precursor of such artists as Pierre et Gilles and David LaChapelle, James Bidgood revolutionized gay male erotic imagery. From a cramped Hell’s Kitchen tenement apartment during the 1960s, the artist produced the bulk of his creative output of photographs. The artist was the first to take the pulp and glamour aesthetic of the 1940s and 1950s and apply it to male erotic fantasies: employing vibrant colors and exaggerated props and costumes to celebrate homosexuality and the male form in an explosion of colorful eroticism that has stood the test of time.
