American Ecstasy

One Eyed Jacks is pleased to announce the UK debut of New York photographer Barbara Nitke. The show’s title American Ecstasy is taken from her recent monograph of behind-the-scenes photographs of the American porn industry in the years 1982-1991. Featuring famed stars such as Ron Jeremy, Vanessa Del Rio and Nina Hartley, this series of intimate photographs embraces Nitke’s long-standing fascination with human sexual relations, a subject she has explored in numerous televised debates.

The result of 12 years work as a set photographer on in the industry, American Ecstasy allows us a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse at this pre-Internet ‘Golden Age of Porn’, which Nitke describes as: “the most exciting, boring, stomach-turning, splendid subject I could ever hope to photograph.”
