PROLIFICALLY ILLUSTRATED in the full page, black-and-white sadomasochistic photography of Barbara Nitke with accompanying descriptive captions. From the 'Honoring the Sexual: The Photographs of Barbara Nitke' Introductory by A. D. Coleman: "Within the present generation of photographers, a distinct cohort-more numerous by far than any preceding it-has undertaken the exploration of what I've come to call the "photo-erotic": not just the making of sexually provocative photographs, but the creation of images that explicitly observe our sexual lives, produced in collaboration with people willing to have their own sexual behaviors described, interpreted, and put on public record bythese photographers." 104 pages. "This represents a shift of no small proportions in cultural attitudes toward the representation of and discourse about human sexuality, a major leap forward in frankness about matters sexual and full disclosure of relevant particulars. At a time when varieties of sexual practice once considered marginal and taboo-gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, SM, B&D, and more-have moved from the periphery to the center, and from the closet into the open, the work of photographers such as Barbara Nitke has helped bring the discussion of these sexual alternatives into the mainstream."
