This is one of the highlights of this Paris Photo: MUUS Collection presents a solo exhibition of works by the American photographer Fred W. McDarrah : Pride and Protest is curated by writer and New Yorker photography critic Vince Aletti.
In chronicling one of the most important and historic social justice movements in American history, McDarrah captures the struggles and joys of the LGBTQ+ community leading the way towards liberation. Pride and Protest includes over 60 photographs made over three decades depicting the aftermath of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising and portraits of key queer authors, artists and performers. The majority of the images on display were first published in The Village Voice, where McDarrah served as staff photographer and editor. As Aletti writes: “Fred went on to document the protests, marches and key figures involved in the gay rights movement in all its contentious and celebratory public display.”
Fred W. McDarrah : Pride and Protest is on view at Paris Photo from November 9-12 at booth G1.
