In these photographs, Boots Bryant depicts the tense erotic rituals of traditional public cruising.
We don't want to sounds like old farts, but you kids have it so easy these days. Your mobile can tell you if there is someone within 100 feet of you who is a possible sex partner. Why, when we were young, we had to walk 10 miles in the snow just to suck a cock. Barefoot.
Yes, street cruising still happens, but it is more and more rare these days. That's why we found these photos by notorious photographer Boot Bryant both sexy and nostalgic. His tense depictions of the often dangerous dance of picking up a stranger on the street, in a park or in a public restroom are realistic and freighted with all the memories of another time. The images evoke the sexual mayhem in John Rechy's City of Night and Numbers as well as the pickup stor books of Tom of Finland. Knowing Boots Bryant, the act of taking these photos in broad daylight came with certain risks as well, but the rewards are worth it.
