Body Alchemy: Transsexual Portraits
October 16th, 1996
ISBN 1573440620 (ISBN13: 9781573440622)
The idea of gender is no long as fixed as it once was: Tootsie, La Cage aux Folles, and Milton Berle saw to that. But none of this has prepared us for Loren Cameron's amazing portraits of transsexuals. Beautifully reproduced and complemented with notes and short essays, these portraits of women who are now men may startle, but they will also make you marvel at the genuine complexities of life, sex, and desire. Body Alchemy might have been a curiosity, like Diane Arbus's photographs of those outside the physical and cultural mainstream, but Cameron's art is so empathetic, so precise, that we are left in awe and with a new understanding of the realities of being human.

The Brooklyn-born photographer (who belongs to the same generation as Robert Mapplethorpe) is a chronicler of the city that never sleeps, and so it seems his camera neither rested a single moment. As art collector and museum founder Charles Leslie put it, Stellar is a living witness to the urban drama which spanned the years from 1969 to the present and his imagery reconfirms the centrality, in spite of everything, of eternal male beauty.

Travels in a Gay Nation: Portraits of LGBTQ Americans
December 1, 2017
Throughout the 1970s, filmmaker Barbara Hammer toured the United States, Africa, and Europe, making film after film about women and the lesbian experience, both of which had seldom been seen by a woman, for women on screen before. She made a slew of now-legendary experimental films, including Sisters! (1973), Dyketactics (1974), Multiple Orgasm (1976), Sappho (1978), and Double Strength (1978), more or less inventing lesbian cinema at a time when such material had largely been relegated to the pornographic imagination of male artists and filmmakers. During this prolific period, Hammer photographed her travels, her lovers, moments of community and kinship between her collaborators on set, private and public performances, friends, strangers.

February 1st, 1998

It includes illustrations from groundbreaking magazines such as Physique Pictorial, the leading organ of the mid-50s gay scene, and it covers the entire range from classic masters of male nude photography, such as Herbert List, George Platt Lynes or Robert Mapplethorpe, to the pin-up beefcake of the sex magazines.

May 1st 2006
ISBN0226368580 (ISBN13: 9780226368580)
There was a time in America when two men pictured with their arms wrapped around each other, or perhaps holding hands, weren’t necessarily seen as sexually involved—a time when such gestures could be seen simply as those of intimate friendship rather than homoeroticism. Such is the time John Ibson evokes in Picturing Men, a striking visual record of changes in attitudes about relationships between gentlemen, soldiers, cowboys, students, lumberjacks, sailors, and practical jokers. Spanning from 1850 to 1950, the 142 everyday photographs that richly illustrate Picturing Men radiate playfulness, humor, and warmth.

Robert Mapplethorpe: The Photographs
March 15th, 2016
ISBN 160606469X (ISBN13: 9781606064696)
The legacy of Robert Mapplethorpe (1946 –1989) is rich and complicated, triggering controversy, polarizing critics, and providing inspiration for many artists who followed him. Mapplethorpe taught himself about the history of art, how to run a studio, how to network, and how to keep the public interested in him. At the same time, he honed a distinctive individual vision based on craftsmanship and an aesthetic of classical grace. One of the most influential figures of his time, today Mapplethorpe stands as an example to emerging photographers who continue to test boundaries and concepts of the beautiful.
September 28th 1999

One of the most important artists to emerge in the last quarter century was Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989), whose bold photographs left a strong impression on society and culture. Known primarily for his refined aesthetic, Mapplethorpe created classical portraits, nudes, and still lifes that helped redefine photography as an art form at a time when the medium was floundering. Mapplethorpe's controversial sex pictures -- blunt images of sadomasochism and live "play" -- were simultaneously condemned and revered during Mapplethorpe's life, and later became the center of debate over public funding for the arts, censorship, and the First Amendment.

Snap : Photographs by David Sprigle
November 27th 1999
ISBN1883923417 (ISBN13: 9781883923419)
In SNAP, Sprigle fundamentally changes the way we understand the beauty of the accidental moment. These images of rough elegance are reminiscent of the attenuated figures, movement and tension of Baroque Paintings. Yet, the characteristics are random--products of ostensible lighting conditions. The photos, Sprigle's newest series, are a visual essay about our instant culture. About a new aesthetic that arises from the intersection of cheap consumer technology and art. He presents a sanctioned voyeurism: reality tightly cropped, frontally composed and blurred by time to become unexpectedly beautiful. His color pallet, seemingly based in oil paint rather then photographic grain, is drawn from the Impressionistic Masters. Sprigle's work examines the way light rearranges an almost-classical memory of the human form.
April 1st 2009
ISBN3867870225 (ISBN13: 9783867870221)
His eye for masterful compositions and lighting leads collectors and critics to drawing strong comparisons to Robert Mapplethorpe.

During a year of shooting, an unusually collaborative relationship evolved between artist and subject.

January 1, 1994
ISBN0670858501 (ISBN13: 9780670858507)
For Gay and Lesbian Americans, visibility has always been a key issue. While some maintain a life in the closet for family, career, or personal reasons, others come out to a world that rarely celebrates, and at times refuses to tolerate, the simple courage of people just being themselves. Out in America should look no different from the rest of America to the casual observer - there are farmers and artists, sky divers, families, professionals, and retirees. But for gay men, lesbians, and their supporters, the 250 photographs in this book offer evidence of a community that knows no boundaries, a community that has put down roots in truly every segment of American society.

Intimacies covers the entire career of pro-sex feminist photographer Tee Corinne. Speaking about her work, Corinne says, If I became a 'visible and accessible lesbian artist' it is because of the images made to fill a perceived void, to fill these blank spaces where desire and questioning and transcendence converged, where my intellectual longings and seven years of university art training responded to the social and cultural forces set in motion in the 1960s.

Beach Boys (2012)
April 1st 2012
ISBN3867872430 (ISBN13: 9783867872430)
It’s pretty obvious where the inspiration for this book comes from — the artist lives in Miami Beach, Florida. The eternal summer, the unique light in this part of the world and the silent force of nature, all this can be found in his pictures. But mainly, of course, it’s all about his models. Those young men are filled with joy and happiness—just like one of those great classic albums by the Beach Boys, full of songs you can dance and dream to. Wonderful concept, so all we need now is a good title. Well, how about … yeah, that brings it to the point!
Zanele Muholi: Faces and Phases 2006-2014
November 30th 2014
ISBN3869308079 (ISBN13: 9783869308074)
In Faces and Phases, Zanele Muholi embarks on a journey of "visual activism" to ensure black queer and transgender visibility. Despite South Africa's progressive Constitution and 20 years of democracy, black lesbians and transgender men remain the targets of brutal hate crimes and so-called corrective rapes. Taken over the past eight years, the more than 250 portraits in this book, accompanied by moving testimonies, present a compelling statement about the lives and struggles of these individuals. They also comprise an unprecedented and invaluable archive: marking, mapping and preserving an often invisible community for posterity.

In his photos, David Vance manages to connect the power of masculinity and its sensuousness like no other photographer. His classically beautiful models are often entangled in everyday or quiet moments and possess a dreamy gravity. A fine collection of erotica from one of America's most important male photographers. A real attraction.

Thomas Synnamon's SLEEPLESS is a successful first monograph of a new artist's work. Previously active as a model, Synnamon brings to his new venture of photography a core of information that most other photographers do not possess: he has been the subject of photographs and now he is the creator. That may seem a small additive to his self- trained new vocation, but spending time with his images encourages an inner knowledge of just how to achieve the result he wants. His models appear to confide in him in the creative act in a very responsive way, making these black and white and color photographs in praise of the male form a very personal success for him.
