Between 1990 and 1992\, Philip-Lorca diCorcia\, funded by a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship\, made multiple trips to Los Ang eles to scout locations\, invent scenarios\, and ultimately find male prost itutes that would agree to pose for photographs. DiCorcia used his fellowsh ip money to pay the men whatever price they charged for their most typical service\, and ultimately prompted a complaint of misuse of government funds . The titles of these encounters amplify the facts: Ralph Smith\, 21 years old\, Ft. Lauderdale\, Florida\, and $25.

\n

Hustlers \;r epresents an early example of \;diCorcia&rsquo\;s choreographed street photography. Reinvigorating the genre instigated by Eugè\;ne Atget an d Henri Cartier-Bresson in the early twentieth century\, and particularly p opularized thanks to the latter&rsquo\;s notion of the &ldquo\;decisive mom ent\,&rdquo\; \;diCorcia&rsquo\;s photographs at first glance appear to depict random moments in public settings. They rarely\, however\, involve chance. \;Knowing precisely what he wanted from each photograph and fea rful of police involvement\, diCorcia would \;first try out his idea fo r a composition with his assistants\, and then return to the location with the hustlers he had approached\, such as a motel room\, a vacant lot\, a fa st-food restaurant\, in between and inside cars. The narrative was always d eliberate. From the moment diCorcia approached a potential subject (usually around Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood)\, to the completion of the sho ot\, seldom more than one hour had passed. \;The result is a series of carefully composed\, yet loaded works which revolve around a tension betwee n the subject&rsquo\;s unique presence in front of the camera and the artis t&rsquo\;s predetermined idea for the shot.

\n

In 1993\, twenty-one im ages were exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art\, New York\, marking diCorc ia&rsquo\;s first solo museum exhibition. \;The show\, entitled \;< em>Strangers\, was later accompanied by a museum \;publication. Tw enty years later\, the exhibition at David Zwirner coincides with the publi cation of Hustlers (steidldangin). \;Created by Pascal Dangin in collaboration with the artist\, this large-scale publication presents th e series in its entirety.

\n

Also on view\, and shown for the first ti me in the United States\, will be a room-sized installation composed of thr ee synchronized single-channel projections entitled \;Best Seen\, N ot Heard \;(2012).
