"I’m bringing back images of things that people don’t want to look at, don’t want to deal with." Retrospective monograph on countercultural chronicler Charles Gatewood. A self-taught photographer, Gatewood Initially gained recognition for a widely syndicated portrait he captured of Bob Dylan (with sunglasses and a cigarette) before gaining prominence for Sidetripping (1975), his classic collaboration with William S.

This collection comprises images selected from his previous photobooks (Sidetripping, Forbidden Photographs, Primitives: Tribal Body Art, and The Left-Hand Path) and previously unpublished work. Illustrated with 50 black-and-white plates; with a foreword by Burroughs and an introductory essay by A.D. Coleman. Out of series copy from an edition of 2000.
