Its always darkest before dawn

For nearly a decade, through his enigmatic and compelling Polaroids, Jeremy Kost has been telling the stories of New York nights from within its hottest party spots.

In 2002, while staying with friends in Chelsea, Kost borrowed the camera of one of his hosts and took it to The Cock. Ever since that fateful night, year after year, Kost has been the sole photographer to capture a complete millennial portrait of New York’s famed drag queens, go-go boys, transsexuals, and wild-partying celebrities.
Celebration, angst, drunken revelry, joy, exhaustion, vulnerability, honesty, and pomp and circumstance are all captured in the uncompromising immediacy of Kost’s Polaroids of personalities such as Amanda Lepore, Sophia Lamar, and oddly enough even former President Bill Clinton, Pamela Andersen, Paris Hilton, and many more.
