The Homoerotic Photograph : Male Images from Durieu / Delacroix to Mapplethorpe
by Allen Ellenzweig
Publisher's Description
"In The Homoerotic Photograph, Allen Ellenzweig reminds us that photography has persistently captured the male gaze upon other men. Gathered here are 127 beautiful and provocative photographs that reflect the wide-ranging history of male homoeroticism as revealed by the camera--amply suggesting spiritual, physical, and intellectual exchange between men. To accompany these images, Ellenzweig offers a detailed account of the multiple and complex meanings of the homoerotic, from the 1850s to today."--the publisher. Included are images by Eugène Durieu, Thomas Eakins, Herbert List, Minor White, Robert Mapplethorpe, and others.
