The Fine Arts Museums are honored to present the exhibition and publication Anthony Friedkin: The Gay Essay, devoted to a series of photographs made between 1969 and 1973, at the outset of the photographer Anthony Friedkin's long and productive career. The Gay Essay is a kaleidoscopic, personal response to gay life in Los Angeles and San Francisco at the dawn of the Gay Liberation movement. More than four decades later, it stands as both a significant record of historic change in our culture and an eloquent testament to Friedkin's passion for the art of photography.
