Over the course of thirty years, Peter Hujar (1934 – 1987) created a dazzling range of portraits, landscapes, nudes and street scenes. He is regarded as an artist’s artist, a quintessentially New York photographer, revered by colleagues such as Richard Avedon and Nan Goldin, and respected by the starry assortment of painters, writers, performers and friends who served as his subjects. The likes of Diane Vreeland, Divine, David Wojnarowicz and Susan Sontag are featured in this exhibition. Yet whatever the ‘wattage’ of the subject, Hujar’s images deliver an indelible emotional charge, a psychological acuity born of exquisite sensitivity and an unmistakable intimacy with his subjects.
