CHARLES GATEWOOD | Interviews by V. Vale | Re/Search Publications 2015 | This book spans fifty years of "underground/counter-cultural" photography by Charles Gatewood. American-born Charles Gatewood's career has emphasized rebelliousness against the status quo, and documentation of "underground," "underclass" and "bigger-than-life" individuals who live lives that challenge middle-class morals and value systems.
GOLIATH WALLPAPER OF FAME | Tattoo Special | John Held Jr., Foreword | Paul Benchley, Preface | Goliath Books 2011 | Where others would look away or change the side of the street, Charles Gatewood pulls out his camera and shoots his subjects, from William S. Burroughs to drunken revelers and modern blood drinkers, like a war photographer.
IN THE BLOOD by Miranda Luna | C. Gatewood, Photographer | 2011 | In the decaying warehouse performance spaces and dimly lit nightclubs of San Francisco, a predator perfects his rituals of blood and torture, creating vast landscapes of nihilistic hedonism for jaded aesthetes. In the Tenderloin, in a haze of heroin and loss, horror novelist Zoe Starr tries to reassemble the shattered pieces of her life, gradually alienating everybody she has come to trust. A shared lust for blood begets a nightmare world of post-modern sacrifice.
