In the basement of an apartment building in Manhattan, Scott Zieher discovered a pile of photographs among the effects of a recently deceased tenant. These photographs offer an intimate portrait of a group of gay bikers in the city and the woods, and a touching snapshot of an entire generation at its carefree zenith. A pithy narrative can be drawn from these two groups of photographs taken a decade apart. The black and white sequence from 1962 reveals a hushed, simmering milieu romantically enhanced by antiquated photographic techniques. By 1972 the photographs are more confident and considered, as are their subjects. Newly aware of muscle and biker magazines and their heavy-handed eroticism, photographer and photographed instead brim with a subtly vibrant, chromatic pride - until there, middle-of-the-road Americans might have failed to perceive the homoerotic undertones of their most heterosexual of institutions.
