Friends and Lovers

Nan Goldin’s photos are a film in stills. They capture downtown New York bohemians and outcast drag queens embracing, sleeping, kissing, and dying of AIDS. And just as Goldin’s images became emblematic of the ’70s and ’80s postpunk skid-row scene, her protégé and muse Sunny Suits’s stills are doing the same for the ’00s. The California-born, Paris-based photographer captures her friends and lovers with the same raw intimacy as Goldin, but the whole scene is updated a good 20 years. On view at Fredric Snitzer Gallery, “Regular Lovers” is a collection from Suits’s visual diary, a blur of hipster body parts embracing in East Village kitchens and torsos reclined in repose in Geneva hotel rooms. With works such as Ian in Our Bedroom, Brooklyn, the exhibit is as much about the subjects as it is about their relationship to the photographer.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m. Starts: Sept. 24. Continues through Oct. 3, 2011
