Street Sex Photos 2 by San Francisco gay radical sex photographer Mark I Chester continues to document images of gay men being sexual on the streets of South of Market in San Francisco. It is both a love letter to the past and a hope and dream for the future. South of Market has been changing for decades, but right now it is changing at an exponential rate. These images insist that despite any changes that on some level, we still own these streets at night and we are an essential part of the history of these streets. They are part documentary, part fantasy, part fine art sexual portraiture on the street and part outlaw behavior. Yet, there is an authenticity to the men in these images. These aren’t cookie cutter men – they are sexual, outrageous and full of desire; men who still believe that sex is an essential and important part of what it means to be gay. The work can be viewed by appointment after Folsom.
