Arch Brown Memoir A Pornographer Is Published
A long-lost memoir by the Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation’s founder, Arch Brown, has just been published by Chelsea Station Editions, New York. Written sometime during the late 1970s, A Pornographer recounts Brown’s early career as a director of sex films (both gay and straight) and his interactions with the men and women who appeared in his movies. The memoir’s manuscript was discovered among Brown’s papers following his death in the fall of 2012. A historical gem, A Pornographer provides an insightful psychological view of the performers who were drawn to having sex in front of Brown’s camera. The book features an introduction by Chelsea Station publisher (and AABBF advisory board member) Jameson Currier, an afterword by AABBF president James Waller, an extensive filmography, and many of Brown’s photographs, including shots taken on the sets of several of his films.
