The Other Side

£75.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Ever since the early 1970's Goldin has lived with and among drag queens, documenting both their glamour and their struggles. Her seminal second book, The Other Side, is her very personal declaration of love and gratitude to these drag queens, who showed her a way out of the captivity of pre-packaged, socially prescribed identity. As she put it: "The pictures in this book are not of people suffering gender dysphoria but rather expressing gender euphoria. This book is about new possibilities and transcendence. The people in these pictures are truly revolutionary; they are the real winners of the battle of the sexes because they have stepped out of the ring." In contrast to much of the early 90's drag queen mania, The Other Side has brilliantly passed the test of time: Goldin's photographs are as beautiful, moving, and vibrant as ever, heralding the utopian promises of a world where gender has stopped being a prison -a vision that remains as vital and acute as it was when the book was first published.
Pictorial covers and spine in very good condition with only mildly bumped/rubbed corners. Tightly bound. Edges clean showing no signs of foxing or toning. Contents very clean and bright. Photographs in B&W and colour.
