“Forbidden Photographs is a funny, poignant and sometimes scary document of lives—including the photgrapher’s—lived well beyond the edge. Some of these portraits are humorous, some will make you cringe, some will make you cross your legs, and one, of a tattooed fetus, may even make you gag. Yet what comes across here, in a weird way, is the integrity and clarity of the vision.”
“From Diane Arbus’s countless followers in the 1970’s, only Charles Gatewood has been able to continue her ‘terrible’ sensibility…with subjects from subcultures the camera eye was not ready to confront in Arbus’s time.”
