Editorial Reviews

Review

“’The collages were my favorite pieces to make, with the whole idea of hiding flaws and accentuating strong points.’”
Jeremy Kost, New York Times, T Style

“’It’s the fantasy that attracts me. My relationship to the characters and subjects is the metaphor for transformation. They’re like butterflies.’”
Jeremy Kost, Los Angeles Times

"This first monograph from party photographer Jeremy Kost, master of the Polaroid collage captures New York's underground club scene with vibrantly skewed portraits of drag queens, go-go boys, trans divas and hard-partying personalities by cocktail-shaking spontaneity with meticulous composition, accentuating the careful performance aspect of nightlife culture."  Advocate

"It's fashionable to say that truly thrilling New York City nightlife died off during the Giuliani era. But It's Always Darkest Before Dawn, a collection of Polaroids shot by photographer Jeremy Kost, proves you can still find places packed to bursting with overstimulated club kids, fabulous drag queens, and debauched celebs-if you know where to look."

"Kost's shots are unstaged, honest and show a good time!"
iD

 
Jeremy Kost has "...made a career of inviting us beyond the velvet ropes to the go-go boys, drag queens and delicious eye candy that light up the night."
New York Press
