A Special Presentation of Photographs by


JAMES BIDGOOD & JOHN MAYBURY

Friday 11 September 2015   18:00 – 19:30

Before making the extraordinarily influential film Pink Narcissus in the mid-1960s, which revolutionized erotic imagery, James Bidgood made a series of photographs setting young male models in elaborate “underwater” sets constructed in his New York tenement apartment. These early and now rare vintage images were developed and printed at a local drugstore and were advertised for sale in men’s physique magazines in the 1960s. Bidgood, who lives in New York, has released the last of these colour vintage prints for a special presentation in Rome.

Alongside the Bidgood prints, the avantgarde British filmmaker John Maybury will show recent black and white photographs taken of the performer Arthur Gillet among the ruins of the ancient Greek Temple of Segesta in Sicily.
