Mark Morrisroe is featured in the new issue of “Aperture”

Mark Morrisroe, Aperture Magazine

Mark Morrisroe’s work is featured in the new issue of “Aperture” with an article by Eva Respini, Chief Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art (formerly Curator of Photographs at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City). The issue focuses on queer photography. Respini writes:

Following are some stories about the life and times of Morrisroe. He was the illegitimate son of the infamous Boston Strangler, Albert DeSalvo. His mother was a drug-addicted prostitute. He ran away from home at thirteen and was taken in by hustlers. While turning a trick in drag, he was shot by a john who realized Morrisroe wasn’t a woman. He was shot by a trick who was tracing drawings on his back with a gun. He was the subject of a snuff film and left for dead. And more.
