Sinopsis

This book is all about fearless queer photography. i-D / Vice Art, more than anything, opens up the possibility of approaching one's own sexuality beyond the limits imposed by taboos. Not only does it allow for a risk-free, playful exploration of gender and forbidden desires, but it is unique in capturing its contradictions. In recent years, a young and active queer photography scene has emerged, helped in large part by social media. Indulging their desire for self-presentation, affirmation, and reflection, many photographers portray male homosexuality in particular as a private idyll. At the same time, they shine a critical light on their own and society's approach to transsexuality and gender roles and expose the corrupting but also affirmative power of pornography. Films, series, and mainstream cultural appropriation suggest that society has largely embraced queer lifestyles. However, a number of documentary photographers provide evidence that being gay or lesbian can still lead to marginalization, isolation, stigmatization, and violence in certain countries and communities. Their works also take the regime of sexuality itself into account and show that many bans on same-sex contact have colonial origins. This carefully researched and richly designed book introduces 52 contemporary photographers, including those of well-established notoriety as well as plenty of unknown and less well-known talent.

    Denman, Gordon
    Embracing, knotted and bent together, the lovers — men and women — are performing, as if on a cosmic plane, the choreography of love. Sex is a celebration that literally tears us from daily reality and throws us into the symbolic universe of invisible powers. This may explain why such images of naked bodies making love always compel us to stop in fascination. Not only do they “...
