Pola-Reds Book Launch
Gay City- Calamus Auditorium
Seattle, WA
Share this event:






Pola-Reds: Confections from the Edge is a photo-book of Polaroid images, self-portraits and documents of private performances, shot principally in the late '70s in San Francisco. In addition to more than 60 pages of full color images, there is a personal essay by the photographer and an afterword by Debora Iyall, vocalist with the band Romeo Void.  

Tuesday, October 29, 2013, 6:30 pm is the book launch for Pola-Reds at Calamus Auditorium at Gay City Health Project, 571. E Pike Street.  Pola-Reds: Confections from the Edge was partially funded through a Kickstarter project, and had its debut at San Francisco Punk Homecoming, Sept. 21-22, 2013. The book is carried by Elliott Bay Book Company and Rare Medium Gallery in Seattle, WA, by Nationale in Portland, OR, and by City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco. Pola-Reds: Confections from the Edge is in the libraries of Gay City Health Project and the San Francisco Art Institute.

Jack Johnston began using Polaroid film in the late 1970s to document his life and his private performances as a queer art punk. From a rarely-seen collection of hundreds of Polaroids, Pola-Reds: Confections from the Edge adds a chapter to the throng of books on San Francisco punk rock, a rare look not from the stage or the streets, but at home, in bedrooms and art studios.
