Deborah Bright (Ed.) - The Passionate Camera : Photography and Bodies of Desire - GLBT Non Fiction All Books by Deborah Bright - Author of : The Passionate Camera : Photography and Bodies of Desire
Paperback - 456 pages (October 1998) 
Routledge; ISBN: 0415145821

"GLBT Photography and Art; 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."

Loren Cameron (Photographer) - Body Alchemy: Transsexual Portraits - GLBT Non Fiction All Books by Loren Cameron (Photographer) - Author of : Body Alchemy: Transsexual Portraits
Paperback (November 1996) 
Cleis Pr; ISBN: 1573440620

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"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."

Dominique Fernandez - A Hidden Love: Art and Homosexuality - GLBT Non Fiction All Books by Dominique Fernandez - Author of : A Hidden Love: Art and Homosexuality
Hardcover: 320 pages (June 2002)
Publisher: Prestel USA; ISBN: 3791327046

"GLBT Photography/Art; Homosexuality has always existed, but for centuries artists have felt compelled to codify its expression in their work, in essence hiding it from the public eye. In this dazzling and highly original book, Dominique Fernandez takes a close look at artistic works from the past centuries from rites of passage into manhood and representations of the hero, to the pantheon of pagan gods and the image of the lesbian to show how the most powerful representations of homosexuality have emerged from conditions of secrecy and even repression."

Peter Horne, Reina Lewis - Outlooks : Lesbian and Gay Sexualities and Visual Culture - GLBT Non Fiction All Books by Peter Horne, All Books by Reina Lewis - Author of : Outlooks : Lesbian and Gay Sexualities and Visual Culture
Paperback - 208 pages 1 edition (October 1996) 
Routledge; ISBN: 0415124689

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"Outlooks explores the relationship of lesbian and gay sexualities to visual representation. It reflects the richness of lesbian and gay ways of producing and reading visual culture, at the same time tackling such issues as the advantages of adopting a queer perspective on past art, the responses of lesbian and gay artists to the AIDS crisis, and society's attempts to censor homosexual art.
This volume provides a space for lesbian and gay artists to exhibit their work and discuss its relationship to sexuality. It allows for a wide ranging theoretical and historical discussion to the place of lesbians and gay men within visual cultures and shows how much has been missed by a heterosexist approach to art history and the study of culture.
Richly illustrated, Outlooks includes statements by contemporary lesbian and gay artists, photographers and performers as well as articles by art historians, cultural theorists and lesbian and gay activists.
Contributors include Emmanuel Cooper on Francis Bacon,; Richard Dellamora on Andy Warhol and postmodernism; Richard Kaye on the gay icon of St. Sebastian; Thais Morgan on lesbianism and nineteenth century aestheticism; Wendy Leeks on Ingres and the lesbian viewer; Reina Lewis and Katrina Rolley on lesbians and the fashion spread; and Simon Watney on the visual poetics of mourning."
