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.”
