Description

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.
