The royal treatment: Tom Atwood's photo book Kings in Their Castles takes an intimate look into the culture of urban gay men, one home at a time.
The result of all his hard work is Kings in Their Castles (University of Wisconsin Press), which features a wide range of gay men in their New York City homes, from the guy next door to notable figures like Todd Oldham. Atwood says his goal with Kings was to create a more realistic portrait of gay male life.
"When I'm in a gay bookstore, all I see are these books filled with photos of nude gay men romping through a beach," says Atwood. "I wanted to do something different."
