Product Overview

In the basement of an apartment building in Manhattan,?Scott Zieher discovered a pile of photographs among the?effects of a recently deceased tenant. These photographs,?presented for the first time in Band of Bikers, offer an?intimate portrait of a group of gay bikers in the city and the?woods, and a touching snapshot of an entire generation at?its carefree zenith.

Newly aware of muscle and biker magazines and their heavy-handed?eroticism, photographer and photographed brim?with a subtly vibrant, chromatic pride. The photographs as?a whole bring into focus a brief, specific period of relative?innocence, when middle-of-the-road Americans more often?than not failed to perceive the homoerotic undertones of?their most heterosexual of institutions. With conceptual light?cast by issues ranging from anonymity in homosexuality and?underground motorcycle chic, to vernacular photography?s?pop-culture ramifications, a warm and generous spirit?of camaraderie pervades this subterranean survey. Like?a real-world set for?Scorpio Rising casually captured by?an unpretentious extra, presented as Band of Bikers and?accompanied by an essay by Zieher, this found cache of?old-school, leather party snapshots attains archeological?significance.
