Second Life: Bruce Hainley Selects by Bruce Hainley
I’ve spent much of the summer thinking about AIDS and what I assume is called 'the politics of barebacking'. I know. Super fun-tastic. The photographs of Peter James solarize the sweet antithesis of all of that, although, if I were to put his work through the theoretical paces it deserves, I’d point out that he captures the male body in the sunset of its innocence, re: AIDS, when, in a desperate attempt to escape a virus, men, as depicted in popular culture (i.e., on the level of the imaginary), put all their attention into girding themselves with gym regimes and juicing on steroids for grander, quicker results.
