Stanley Stellar (b. 1945 in Brooklyn, New York), an artist who belongs to the same generation as Robert Mapplethorpe, began his work around the same time, after spending years working as an art director. Stellar was educated at Parsons School of Design where he focused on graphic design and photography. Influenced by Peter Hujar and other artists exploring homoerotic subject matter in New York City, Stellar realized photography could provide a great means of talking about the gay experience. His interest in reaching as broad an audience as possible and "getting into people's consciousness" led him to create post-cards. Indeed, his documentary images of gay life from the 1970s impress themselves indelibly on the viewer's memory. A matter-of-fact objectivity and formal elegance is belied by a pervasive sense of soul, something that Stellar achieves so naturally, even in his earliest photos. His professional career produced innumerable book designs, editorial desings and art direction for numerous magazines and publishing housese, and many gallery shows of his art photography in the U.


S. and in Europe. He lives and works in New York City.
