In the Vale of CashmereBook - 2015
"'In the Vale of Cashmere' marks the culmination of acclaimed photographer Thomas Roma's four-year odyssey into a densely wooded, secluded corner of Brooklyn's Prospect Park, where gay cruising dominates the footpaths and trails. The Vale of Cashmere, a name that dates back to the 1890s, has long been a meeting place for gay men, and currently, mostly Black men. However, encounters occur between men of all walks of life, as well as gender and sexual identities. Roma's motivation for doing the project came from his wish to honor the memory of a dear friend who died of AIDS in 1991, and who introduced him to the Vale of Cashmere"--Amazon.com.
