– June 12, 2013
“From Gatewood’s early years in the American South, to the depths of New York’s infamous Hellfire Club, to his first meeting with Annie Sprinkle, to the gonzo tattooist Spider Webb, to the bawdy New Orleans Mardi Gras, to the tattooed and pierced denizens of the underground, Gatewood’s Forbidden Photographs text, accompanied by his striking black and white photos, shows a deep understanding, intelligence and need for the often overlooked gray areas of life.”
–In Print Reviews
“Gatewood’s retrospective exhibition, ‘The body and Beyond,’ is nothing less than a visual history of Western body modification, from its underground roots through its proliferation into the mainstream.”
–In The Flesh Magazine
“Gatewood is the direct photographic descendent of Weegee. His images are pure photography, unfettered by the mock majesty of elitist art.”
–Michael Edelson, 35mm Photography
