Every Single One of Them
Photographs by Jack Pierson.
Twin Palms Publishers, Santa Fe, 2003. 272 pp., 180 4-color illustrations, 9/12".

A departure from Ritts and a counterpoint to Tillmans, Pierson's deliberately romantic, mostly frontal pictures of men seem to divulge a glimpse into the artist's very private encounters. And what a line-up: over one-hundred photographs —some close-up, some environmental, some shadowy, some casually composed, others taken on the fly—all tantalizing, with the hint that something erotic has just occurred or soon will. Though most of the men appear scantily clothed and are largely unknown, even anonymous in the sheer numbers represented in the book, a few surprise photographs of celebrities like Brad Pitt and Snoop Dogg turn up in the mix. Yet somehow, by Pierson magic, even the überfamous get caught up in his litany of the here and now, a running confessional of whatever catches his eye as an object of desire. The force of his nostalgic vision, his ability to portray the feeling of a physical connection, and the grand catalogue of desirable men, gives even the celebrities a kind of impossible anonymity. Pierson's real zest for underwear and tight swimming trunks makes for some deeply enjoyable viewing. This important monograph, presented without any text, is out just in time to accompany Pierson's participation in the 2004 Whitney Biennial. Read Publisher's Description.
