André Gelpkes' series "Sex-Theater" was created in the 1970s and shows various performers from differnet sex theaters around Hamburg St. Pauli. "What fascinates me as a photographer about these people are the personalities of the individuals, the actor who was prepared to bring to reality the secret sexual fantasies of an inhibited society in full public view and in exchange for only a fee. Despite an interaction between the greedy theater owner and the lasciviousness of the theater guest, the performer could receive only one thing; the hope for an ideal world. Privately they did not stop creating this," says Galpske. Co-published with Cpress, Spector Books has recently produced a beautiful book of Gelpske's stunning body of work which you can pick up here.
