Attila Richard Lukacs is a leading and controversial artist, best known for his epic paintings of masculine, homoerotic imagery of gay skinheads and military cadets. For over 20 years, the iconic Polaroid picture has played a vital role in his practice. This monograph presents a unique perspective on Lukacs' work through 1,200 Polaroid images taken by the artist himself over the past 20 years. Polaroid images have always served as a core referent in his paintings, but they are here presented as a captivating body of work in their own right.

Reviews

"Regardless of their sexual orientation, or state of (un)dress, there is a beauty, a joy in it all, the unbound ecstasy of a young man on his own away from home for the first time, free to be what he wanted, as he wanted. Would that every young man could have as good a mentor and friend as Michael Morris, a boyfriend like Michael Danger, the manager of Oranienbar in Berlin. All of these elements made up Attila Richard Lukacs, and all of Attila Richard Lukacs goes into his art." --Gay People's Chronicle "Massive (forget being a 'coffee table book' -- put four legs on it and it could be a coffee table), beautifully presented, the book is a must-have for anyone who has an interest in the avant-garde gay visual arts scene."--EDGE Publications "An exploration not only of Lukacs' work, but also of Canadian painting, artistic archives, and the queer art scene of the era." --American Library Association GLBT Round Table -Regardless of their sexual orientation, or state of (un)dress, there is a beauty, a joy in it all, the unbound ecstasy of a young man on his own away from home for the first time, free to be what he wanted, as he wanted.
