This unique exhibition catalogue, published with Rodovid Press in Kyiv in conjunction with the artist’s exhibition at The Ukrainian Museum, provides new insights into the seminal and lesser- known aspects of Peter Hujar’s career, living and working in the Ukrainian Village. The exhibition explores the first fifteen years of Hujar’s professional career. He was a consummate technician, and his portraits of people, animals and landscapes, with their exquisite black-and-white tonalities, were extremely influential. Highly emotional yet stripped of excess, Hujar’s photographs are always beautiful, although rarely in a conventional way.

The lushly illustrated publication features 77 photographs, some never seen or published. Three important interviews with Hujar’s closest friends and colleagues, plus a scholarly essay on his work with the photographer Richard Avedon, chronicle Hujar’s ceaseless creative exploration and observation of life in the East Village of New York.
