Published in 1977 with a $5000 grant from the New York State Council of the Arts, Sex Objects is probably one of the best books on a subject that’s been hammered to death. Photographs and interviews with sex workers in NY, Denver, Baltimore, Chicago, Hollywood. The following year the Council on the Arts’ budget was cut by $4 million, a decision based on a number of factors, including ‘The Kroll incident’, which was considered by NY State Senator John J. Marchi and others to be pornography and something that should not be funded by the state.
