EYE TO EYE: PORTRAITS OF LESBIANS, a photographic history of early Gay Liberation. Photographs by JEB [Joan E. Biren] published by Glad Hag Books, Washington, DC, copyright 1979, First edition, paperback, 80 pp, perfect-bound printed wrappers. With a Forward by Joan Nestle and an introduction by Judith Schwarz, EYE TO EYE offers an extraordinary look at the history of this significant point in the gay movement, a time of great strife and pressure from society when the gay community had only begun to come out of the closet. As the forward states, “JEB’s photographs form a mosaic of Lesbian strength, of our strivings to remake our outer and inner worlds. Lesbian strength is not a simple subject; it is a mix of gentleness and power, play and combat, self-cherishing and communal commitment. It is a strength based not on the conquering of a weaker adversary, but on the refusal to be less than who we are...”
Nearly 40 pages of wonderful, candid photographs with descriptions on the opposite pages, EYE TO EYE is as much an accurate history book as it is a commentary in American lesbian history. Subject matter includes nudity.
Some rubbing/shelf wear to covers and spine. The interior is very clean.
