About the Book
A catalog of a one man exhibition of the work of German photographer Ulli Richter in the Mark I Chester stiudio in San Francisco in July 2010. The exhibition is in conjunction with the 2010 Up Your Alley Fair.
Ulli creates unique abandoned worlds where nothing else exists but men having hard bruising sex with other men.
As Ulli notes, "Most of my work is influenced by surrealism and its preoccupation with dreams, sex and demise ... I combine the kinky reality of a subculture with a poetic-symbolic and sometimes humorous approach while capturing and preserving the moment for the future and future generations."
I am a San Francisco gay 'radical sex' photographer and underground artist who has been documenting his life in photographs since the late 1970s and hosting Gay Men's Sketch, a gay male figure drawing group, in his studio since 1987. In addition to the public books from Gay Men's Sketch, available for viewing, I am working on some private books of sexual photography that focus on gay men and eroticism. If you are interested, please ask me for an invite to see a full online preview of my current private book, "Paul," an 80 page erotic monograph of a San Francisco artist and model. Please state that you are over 18 years old and provide your full name.
