Charles Gatewood (1942-2016), was a photographer who moved in the subcultures of bikers, sex workers, tattooists, body piercers, and fetishists, among others. Gatewood got his start by working as a photographer for newspapers and music magazines after earning a degree in anthropology.

The Flash, lesser known than Gatewood’s photo books, allows his work to be viewed in conversation with the work of his peers, similarly pushing photographic boundaries, and playing with depictions of the bodies of the nonconforming.

Vol. 2, No. 1 includes various works by contributors to the “Off the Wall” exhibition at the Catskill Center for Photography, June 1979, including contributions from Annie Sprinkle, Jay Seeley, George W. Gardner, Tony Mendoza, and more.
