John Palatinus exibition in Antwerp

Antwerpen. John Palatinus is one of the few surviving leaders in the fight for the freedom to disseminate Gay photography and art during the 1950's and 60's. He is a legendary photographer from an era now called 'The Golden Age' of Physique Photography. At that time in America, it was illegal to send some Photography with U.S. Mail.

Palatinus has worked in his studios in Northern Indiana and New York City and published in numerous bodybuilding magazines and other publication.

In early 1959 by an raid by the New York Police in all of John's his cameras, equipment, photographs, negatives, and mailing lists were confiscated and never returned.

Now, after more than half a century, his almost forgotten work has been re-discovered, thanks to the work of archivist and curator of vintage physique photography Alan Harmon. This work is now showed in Antwerp (Belgium) from 12 to 15 may (during Belgium Pride week) and from 2 to 26 june (Antwerp Pride week) at the DESIGN CENTER in Antwerp. <img src=""/> <img src=""/>
