From 1969 to 1973, Anthony Friedkin made a series of eloquent and expressive photographs that chronicled the gay communities in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The Gay Essay was a self-assigned project and, although largely unknown today, it arguably comprises the most important set of photographs in Friedkin’s portfolio to date. For the first time, the full depth and range of this unique series will be presented in an exhibition at the de Young.
