Gay Semiotics

Rare first edition of Hal Fischer’s renowned photobook of San Francisco’s gay scene in the 1970s. analysis of gay vernacular visual culture. Itself a wry appropriation of structuralist theory and the dry formal aesthetics of documentary and anthropological photography, the book is both a valuable compilation and analysis of gay vernacular visual culture and an example of the techniques of ingenious appropriation and pastiche that has been central to gay cultural production.
