Seller Inventory 031192About this Item: Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Per Kate Bellm (Londra, 1987) la fotografia è sinonimo di evasione. Il suo ultimo lavoro infatti, “Night Sky Rising”, ci mostra una sorta di paradiso terrestre, un ambiente naturale fatto di mondi acquatici e paesaggi onirici, dove le protagoniste che a volte si intravedono sono confuse silhouette nude. Rinomata per il suo lavoro nella fotografia di moda, la Bellm, che ha collaborato con riviste come Esquire, GQ, Interview Magazine, Vogue UK e marchi internazionali come ASOS, Gucci, Noor Fares e Ray Ban, ora si spinge oltre: con questa nuova serie esplora la bellezza della natura attraverso uno sguardo personale, ricordandoci di non dimenticare la possibilità di poter vivere a contatto con le meraviglie del nostro pianeta.
On the heels of his bestselling and award winning book Out Underground Gay Graphics From Before Stonewall, Thomas Waugh offers more historic and erotically charged drawings, depicting aspects of gay male sexuality that were once hidden from public view. The more than 200, never before published images in Lust Unearthed are from the private collection of Ambrose DuBek, a Hollywood costume and set designer (his work included George Cukor s 1939 film The Women) who died in 2002 at the age of 87, and whose estate included a wealth of erotic materials, including books, periodicals, prints, and films. DuBek was a passionate advocate and patron of the arts who felt that life and the body were to be celebrated; he had no patience for other people s attempts to make him feel guilty for his attractions and desires, nor any qualms about the different worlds in which he operated. The images from DuBek s collection published here are remarkably frank and explicit depictions of gay men in action created by numerous artists both famous and unknown, and produced during a time when even nude images of men were illegal, and thus rare. Lust Unearthed brings these images out of the boxes in which they were carefully kept and into the light of present day, where expressions of gay male sexuality can be validated and indeed, celebrated. Waugh s text is a remarkable history lesson that illuminates a once furtive underground culture.
