Anthony Friedkin: The Gay Essay

Bob Aufuldish

From the FAMSF: “During the culturally tumultuous years of 1969 to 1973, Anthony Friedkin made a series of eloquent and expressive photographs that chronicle the gay communities in Los Angeles and San Francisco at the time. The Gay Essay was a self-assigned project and, although largely unknown today, it arguably comprises the most important set of photographs in Friedkin’s portfolio to date.”
