Castro’s photography is in the permanent collections of The Alfred Kinsey Institute and The Tom of Finland Foundation. His books and zines are archived at the UCLA library, and The Leather Museum in Chicago. Castro has photographed portraits of the Dalai Lama, (sipping tea) Gore Vidal, Peter Berlin, Alan Poul (producer of Six Feet Under) and his longtime muse, Tony Ward.

Harvey is the editor/creator of his own infrequently published art and culture journal Fluxion and a new book imprint, Fluxion Editions (He edited, designed, and published 13 Years of Bondage: The Photography of Rick Castro last year.)
