My Eric Stanton Timeline currently at the Taschen Gallery in Los Angeles.

Eric Stanton Timeline By Richard Perez at the Taschen Gallery

 This is a massive display on the back wall of the gallery to give people an overview of Eric Stanton's life. As archivist, bizarre culture historian, and co-curator of the show, I contributed the Eric Stanton portion while Dian Hanson did the Elmer Batters' half. At first I was uploading image scans and correcting the timeline via the Internet (since I live in New York City), but when it was obvious that Dian Hanson was still having a lot of trouble, Benedikt Taschen flew me out to Los Angeles. (Twice actually.)

Eric Stanton Timeline Corrections by Richard Perez

In the end, I think it came out nicely. And we can see the arc of his life.

That first photo of Eric Stanton as a sailor was provided courtesy of Amber Stanton (Eric's daughter), who by the way is also a uniquely talented artist. You can see her work here: http://www.amberstanton.com

"Eric Stanton Exhibit" by Richard Perez at the Taschen Gallery

I hope you'll check out the show in person. It's worth a visit. The Eric Stanton (and Elmer Batters) "Bizarre Life" exhibit, featuring subversive, sexually-oriented art you'll never see in a conventional gallery or museum is on display until May 24.

Reviews:

 "If New York collector, writer and fetish historian Richard Pérez Seves had not decided to assemble what he knew about Charles Guyette (along with a substantial selection of images) into this paperback, this influential forerunner of the genre's better known exponents would have continued a lot longer as the great unsung hero of American fetish art."—Tony Mitchell, thefetishistas.com

"If you're at all a fan of fetish art ... then this book will be right up your alley." —kinkweekly.com

"I've often cited John Willie's gals as my biggest fashion inspiration but I'll have to start tipping my hat to Guyette as well."—Dita Von Teese
