Book Description:
More than any other medium, photography creates and reinforces our ideals of gender and sexuality. From advertising and journalism to fashion and fine art, photographs show how 'good bodies' and 'bad bodies' look and behave. The Passionate Camera assembles over fifty artists, scholars and critics to examine the relationship between photography and sexuality. The contributors consider many issues including the importance of reinterpreting historical works by known homosexual photographers, contemporary photography and sexual diversity, and the use and abuse of photographs of sexual subjects in current political campaigns and direct activism. The Passionate Camera features color and black and white illustrations of works by artists such as Ajamu, Catherine Opie, Lyle Ashton Harris, Yasumasa Morimura, John O'Reilly and Sunil Gupta. For the first time, these works have been gathered together in a fresh and accessible critical context, making The Passionate Camera the preeminent source on queer and sex radical photography at the end of twentieth century. Contributors: Deborah Bright, Kaucyila Brooke, Michael Anton Budd, David Deitcher, Linda Dittmar, Mark Alice Durant, Paul B. Franklin, Lyle Ashton Harris, Thomas Allen Harris, Carol Jacobsen, David Joselit, Liz Kotz, Catherine Lord, Richard Meyer, Jose Munoz, Mary Patten, Erica Rand, Mark A. Reid, Mysoon Rizk, James Small, Alisa Solomon, Elizabeth Stephens, and Thomas Waugh.
