“As a tangerine donkey prances about the Oval Office, cities like New York desperately need defending. I’m talking New York values here. Sex, ambition, solidarity, beauty, cosmopolitanism, art, toughness bred from — and in defiance of — the meat grinder we call home. All those things worth fighting for.

You’d be wrong to see FUCKING NEW YORK in the spirit of a Weimar portrait show. It’s a vision of utopia, in the city that loves itself best. It’s also a weapon. With humanity, eroticism, and savage vulnerability, FUCKING NEW YORK says fuck you to the idiot fascism that threatens to storm the gates of our city”.

Molly Crabapple, foreword to FUCKING NEW YORK

FUCKING NEW YORK is about fucking New York. Literally.

FUCKING NEW YORK takes the popular myth — “when you live in New York, you’re in a relationship with New York” — and turns it up to eleven. If your relationship with the city is really that intimate, it asks, then what would sex with the city look like? What would it feel like? How would you fuck New York?

The initial images from the series were released in 2013 and immediately garnered attention from the press including Refinery29, Gothamist, PDN, Animal New York, and many other international media outlets. Within weeks FUCKING NEW YORK gained a worldwide following. What started as a summer project on the Lower East Side suddenly grew into a life-changing juggernaut spanning four years, bigger and better than I could’ve ever imagined.

FUCKING NEW YORK brought together New Yorkers of all ages, shapes, sizes, social, and ethnic backgrounds. Those people brought the mix of intense carnality and playful humor I was looking for, and helped breathe life into FUCKING NEW YORK.

In addition to the photographs themselves, the book features two conversations about the book, its inspirations, and the issues it raises. I chose to talk to one woman and one man: artist Molly Crabapple, and writer Sasha Frere-Jones. Finally, more than 2/3 of the photos are previously unreleased and exclusive to the book.
