Tunten Queens Tantes

Vis-à-vis, 1988

4to, pp. [76]. Original photo-illustrated stiff paper wrappers. A touch of wear to edges and corners, otherwise a near fine copy.

First edition of this gallery of distinctly non-glamour queen transvestism.
Jurgen Baldiga [1959-1993] moved to Berlin from rural Germany in 1985, and quickly made a name for himself as a self-taught photographer of the city's underground scene. Pimps, prostitutes, the homeless, transvestites (as here), and sufferers of HIV/AIDS provided the cast list for his work, work cut short by his own death from AIDS at the age of thirty-four.
