Before Madonna invited us all to strike a pose, black and Latino dancers pioneered the art of voguing at competitions throughout Harlem—a scene introduced to mainstream America by the 1990 documentary Paris Is Burning. French photographer Chantal Regnault was there, and now, more than two decades later, she brings us Voguing and the Gay Balls of New York (Soul Jazz Books, $40), an arresting visual record of one of the most exciting subcultures ever to emerge from New York City. Out November 30.
