A collection of previously unpublished black and white photographs of a strip club in Times Square in 1976. At the time, the artist was 23 years old and had just lost all of his belongings in a house fire. Desperate, he responded to an ad in the Village Voice “Male Dancers Wanted (experience not necessary)”, and the resultant images come from his exploration and immersion into the world of all-male stripping and go-go dancing in Times Square. A dynamic documentation of the height of Times Square as New York’s premier red-light district.
