Voyeuristic Images of Furtive Cruising in Public Places

Photography by: Chad States

Cruising is a collection of photographs by photographer Chad States, capturing images of furtive men at their most “discreet.” States traveled to parks across the U.S. to document the culture of gay cruising, in which men meet in public locations for anonymous sex. The resulting photographs are gorgeous, a mixture of portraits, landscapes and voyeuristic tension: amid lush photographs of public parks, a figure or figures suddenly appears, barely visible through the brush. States hopes that his non-judgmental approach to a subculture many have reviled helps viewers see that these parks might be “a place to be liberated.”
