The Gay Seventies

“Hal Fischer: The Gay Seventies is the first monograph to feature the complete set of photo-text works that Hal Fischer produced between 1977 and 1979 in San Franciscos Haight and Castro neighbourhoods. The book brings together, for the first time in nearly four decades, Fischers major photo-text investigations of gay life in late 1970s San Francisco. Unapologetic, humorous, periodically subversive and conceptually driven, Fischers photo-text investigations continue to engage and amuse audiences. As the work demonstrates, the late 1970s–after Stonewall and before AIDS–was a magical moment to be young and gay in San Francisco.” (publisher’s blurb)
