Gilles Bonnecarrère: Male Dancers Wanted

  • 180,00€


Male dancers wanted is a collection of previously unpublished black-and-white photographs by Gilles Bonnecarrère taken in a gay strip club in New York in 1976. 

"New York, 1976. I am twenty-three years old. The house where I was living, wedged between two buildings at 42 Water Street, has just burned down. All that it held is gone. On a bench in Battery Park I find an old Village Voice with the following ad: “Male Dancers Wanted (experience not necessary)”. On 46th Street, near Broadway, I climb the narrow staircase up to a cashier’s window. Denise, the boss, says: “Are you here for the job? Come in, have a look, see if you can do it.”

Presented at the New York Art Book Fair, the book’s first edition is limited to 400 copies only and is poised to become a classic.
