The critically acclaimed
hardcover photography book

by Nikola Tamindzic

 

 

“As a tangerine donkey prances about the Oval Office, cities like New York desperately need defending. I’m talking New York values here. Sex, ambition, solidarity, beauty, cosmopolitanism, art, toughness bred from — and in defiance of — the meat grinder we call home. All those things worth fighting for.

You’d be wrong to see FUCKING NEW YORK in the spirit of a Weimar portrait show. It’s a vision of utopia, in the city that loves itself best. It’s also a weapon. With humanity, eroticism, and savage vulnerability, FUCKING NEW YORK says fuck you to the idiot fascism that threatens to storm the gates of our city.

See you on the barricades.

 

Molly Crabapple, foreword to FUCKING NEW YORK

Ecstatic, orgasmic communion with the city.
Fucking New York offers a thoroughly exciting, provocative and playful take on the absurd relationship between New Yorkers and their city. With a subtle sense of humor and seductive play of light and shadow, the empty streets of New York themselves become protagonists of this magnificent book.
Que se passe-t-il quand les villes font l’amour? Fucking New York est l’aboutissement d’une série de photos où les femmes prennent leur pied dans la ville du tout possible.
Millions of citizens’ throbbing lust buried under traffic lights and newsstands and coffee chains. Fucking New York has a manicness to it reminiscent of American Psycho.
A striking tribute to the passion and hustle that makes the city tick.
We still live in a world where women being seen as sexual beings is a struggle. We’re just as sexual as men and our desire for pleasure is just as important. Nikola Tamindzic knows this; he’s created a work of art that speaks volumes and comments on a social stigma that needs to be destroyed.
New York is a disgusting, dirty, rude, unpleasant city, and we who live here and love it want it in us, on us, and about us. At once an epithet, an exhortation, a desire, and an active state, Fucking New York is a dizzy swirl. The Bronx is up and the Battery’s down, and the women are humping concrete all over town.
Sometimes you just want to grab hold of those buildings, throw yourself at the sidewalk and ugh, ugh, ohhh.
Every once in a while someone comes out with something that makes you bite your lip in both attraction and envy, like goddamn, thank you. This is how we feel about Nikola Tamindzic’s newest book Fucking New York.
Take-charge, don’t-give-a-fuck women copping a feel, licking, sucking, and writhing against fire hydrants, on police cars, with brownstone lions, along grungy sidewalks, and against filthy windows — all gorgeously shot and styled. The fucking, which plays on the city as a voyeuristic candy land, is abstract, playful, strange, beautiful, ecstatic, and occasionally downright possessed.
Unprecedented is the word. A dreamlike trance of celebratory sexual solidarity. A silent, organic declaration of female empowerment. As if the term ‘male gaze’ had been buried definitively in a time capsule for a 100 years, to be mocked and laughed at a century later, along with the countless galleries and magazines across America who serve up feminism as a commodity on a daily basis in order to cash in and sell product to a hyper-charged, fad-obsessed, click-bait addicted, super-sensitive swath of confused, guilt-ridden consumers.
Distant, architectural, slightly removed from reality, quietly sensual photographs — their flow broken up by in-your-face closeups and an occasional overtly humorous shot. The uncanny/unreal city feeling the images evoke are reminiscent of surrealist painter Giorgio de Chirico’s plazas, punctuated with Lynchian humor.
He's certainly nabbed our curiosity.

What is Fucking New York?


What is Fucking New York?


 


What exactly is FUCKING NEW YORK about?

 

FUCKING NEW YORK is about fucking New York. Literally.

FUCKING NEW YORK takes the popular myth — “when you live in New York, you’re in a relationship with New York” — and turns it up to eleven. If your relationship with the city is really that intimate, it asks, then what would sex with the city look like? What would it feel like? How would you fuck New York?

The initial images from the series were released in 2013 and immediately garnered attention from the press including Refinery29, Gothamist, PDN, Animal New York, and many other international media outlets. Within weeks FUCKING NEW YORK gained a worldwide following. What started as a summer project on the Lower East Side suddenly grew into a life-changing juggernaut spanning four years, bigger and better than I could've ever imagined.

FUCKING NEW YORK brought together New Yorkers of all ages, shapes, sizes, social, and ethnic backgrounds. Those people brought the mix of intense carnality and playful humor I was looking for, and helped breathe life into FUCKING NEW YORK.

In addition to the photographs themselves, the book features two conversations about the book, its inspirations, and the issues it raises. I chose to talk to one woman and one man: artist Molly Crabapple, and writer Sasha Frere-Jones. Finally, more than 2/3 of the photos are previously unreleased and exclusive to the book.

Why a physical book?


Why a physical book?


 


Why a physical hardcover book?

 

The internet has made it possible to enjoy many things from our computers and mobile phones; but there are still some things that cannot be replicated on a computer screen. A book, or an art print, resonates with the viewer in a deeper, more personal way. There is a personal investment involved by taking the time to turn the pages of a book and appreciate the tactile nature of the medium; time moves differently as you pause to admire the details in an image that you might have otherwise quickly scrolled past on a screen. This is also why FUCKING NEW YORK will not be available as a digital download.

FUCKING NEW YORK was conceived as a book from the very beginning. To ensure that the experience of exploring the pages matches the imagery contained inside, the book was printed in Verona, Italy, at the same facility The Metropolitan Museum of Art prints their catalogs, and whose printers are regarded as the best in the world.
