Product Overview

For nearly a decade, through his enigmatic and compelling?Polaroids, Jeremy Kost has been telling the stories of New?York nights from within its hottest party spots.

In 2002, while staying with friends in Chelsea, Kost borrowed?the camera of one of his hosts and took it to The Cock. Ever?since that fateful night, year after year, Kost has been the?sole photographer to capture a complete millennial portrait?of New York?s famed drag queens, go-go boys, transsexuals,?and wild-partying celebrities.

An exhilarating trip through underground New York, It?s Always?Darkest Before Dawn puts you on the guest list for a world?of vivacious creativity, performance, costume, and evidence?(if you needed it) that a certain kind of fabulous madness?ain?t dead yet, and was around way before Lady Gaga!

Celebration, angst, drunken revelry, joy, exhaustion,?vulnerability, honesty, and pomp and circumstance are?all captured in the uncompromising immediacy of Kost?s?Polaroids of personalities such as Amanda Lepore, Sophia?Lamar, and oddly enough even former President Bill Clinton,?Pamela Andersen, Paris Hilton, and many more.

It?s Always Darkest Before Dawn is Kost?s first monograph and?collects the best, most outstanding images of New York?s?club culture created in the new millennium.
