In Memoriam

James Bidgood (1933–2022)

We mourn the passing of James Bidgood, who, for 45 years, fashioned a pastel dreamland of gay erotica in his tiny New York apartment. While his best known work is the film Pink Narcissus, released in 1971, the identity of the film’s creator remained unknown until TASCHEN’s BIDGOOD was first released in 1999. Having seen the inside of Bidgood’s cluttered little home I can attest that no one ever did so much with so little in such cramped quarters. A creative genius and all around wonderful human lost to Covid at age 88, January 31, 2022.
