Katsu Naito: West Side Rendezvous

The following photographs are taken from a book called “West Side Rendezvous” by photographer Katsu Naito, which was launched this July with an exhibition at LN-CC store, London. Naito took beautiful and powerful black and white portraits of trans sexworkers in the early nineties in New York’s legendary Meatpacking District. The book published by London-based independent publisher Wild Life Press contains 45 of these pictures and is available in a limited edition of 500 copies. You can buy it over at the webshop of LN-CC, where you can also watch a small preview video.
