ARTIST SERIES

A stylistic precursor of such artists as Pierre et Gilles and David LaChapelle, James Bidgood revolutionized gay male erotic imagery. Bidgood was the first to take the pulp and glamour aesthetic of the 40s and 50s and apply it to male erotic fantasies.

From a cramped Hell’s Kitchen tenement apartment in the 1960s, artist James Bidgood was amazingly able to complete the bulk of his creative output – – photographs which employ vibrant colors and exaggerated props and costumes to celebrate the male form.
