The Business of Pleasure:
New York City Brothels

Photographs by Philip Fagan

Introduction by Anthony Friedkin

New edition TBA


"This unique collection of stark, gritty and suprisingly touching black and white images reveals the everyday world of working girls in NYC in the 1980's. Rarely does Phillip Fagan's camera intrude; it is merely a voyeur or even a welcome partner. These candid and straight forward portraits are reminescent of Diane Arbus’ pictures of people on the fringes of society crossed with Ernest J. Bellocq’s Storyville Photographs taken in the Red Light District of New Orleans in the 1900’s."
