New Intimacies is a photographic study situated in environments known for gay cruising and public sex. Taking influence from Peter Hujar and the photographs he created in the cruising areas around Manhattan’s meatpacking district in the 1970s and 1980s, these experimental images seek to envision the intangible and fleeting qualities of these geographic spaces. The inclusion of various photographic strategies (such as landscapes, portraits, and abstraction) implores viewers to consider the social and cultural elements that contributed to the formation of these sites as spaces of community and public intimacy. Previous studies of these queer cultural interventions have been made by scholars, artists, activists, and theorists such as Douglas Crimp, José Esteban Muñoz, Lauren Berlant, David Wojnarowicz, Michael Warner, Esther Newton, Fiona Anderson, and others. This project builds on these contributions, offering a visual representation of cruising culture that celebrates these geographies of desire and liberation.
