Pride Summary

Pride: Photographs After Stonewall by Fred W. McDarrah

This is the definitive visual account of the gay liberation movement in New York, following the Stonewall uprising in Greenwich Village in 1969, an event that marked the coming-out of New York's gay community. As a direct outcome of Stonewall, gay pride marches were held in 1970 in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. Fifty years later Pride will be celebrated in thousands of cities across the world. Including more than 190 photographs by Fred W. McDarrah chronicling the movement in all its glory, the book includes reflective essays by major figures such as Alan Ginsbery, Hilton Als and Sir Ian McKellan.

Pride Reviews

This is not just a tribute to all LGBT+ activists but a joyful book for everyone to look at and learn from. * Peace News *
New book celebrates 50 years since the riots that galvanized the modern Gay Rights Movement with stunning images of New York City's LGBT community by veteran photographer * Daily Mail *
Greenwich Village's poet-photographer laureate, penning subversive verse in black and white silver gelatin prints. * AnOther Magazine *
Fred W. McDarrah served as the eyes for millions of New Yorkers for more than 50 years. * Daily Mail *
His images - of Jack Kerouac and the Beat generation, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Andy Warhol, Allen Ginsberg, Robert Mapplethorpe, Susan Sontag, a campaigning Bobby Kennedy and the first gay pride activists - defined the city, its artists, politicians and freaks throughout the 50-odd years he clicked his shutter. * Independent *
It wasn't just a case of being at the right place at the right time. McDarrah proved that he was more than just a passive cameraman snapping away at the sidelines. He put himself in the position to capture the best images the world had to offer. * Lomography *
He famously shot a generation of young hopefuls who had come to New York to make their reputations - hopefuls named Kerouac and Warhol and Dylan and Joplin. * The New York Times *
No one captured the movers and shakers of New York City - and America at large - with more immediacy and verve than Fred W. McDarrah. * Village Voice *
McDarrah had an inflamed curiosity, great feelers and an ability to capture liquid moments. He also had hustle. * Dwight Garner, The New York Times *

About Fred W. McDarrah

Frederick William McDarrah (1926 - 2007) was a photographer at Village Voice for over 50 years. He became famous for documenting the Beat Generation, the New York art world, the New York School and the world of Abstract expressionism in New York City during the 1950s. After joining Village Voice, he chronicled the city, its people and its rebellions, including the Stonewall Riots and every annual Gay Pride that followed. His work is a record of the progressive ideas and politics born in the second half of the 20th Century, ideas that have shaped New York and the world ever since.
