Waters was at the Wadsworth Atheneum on June 29, where he performed his “This Filthy World” show. The appearance coincided with the recent publishing of his seventh book, Mr. Know-It-All: The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder (Farrar, Straus and Giroux).
The Wadsworth show also corresponded with “Be Seen: Portrait Photography Since Stonewall,” which runs June 22-Sept. 15.
In the interview, Waters discusses his early career, the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and how the world has changed since he began making films in the 1960s.
