The Wild Good: Lesbian Photographs and Writings on Love
Anchor Books, 1996 - Social Science - 270 pages
An arrestingly vivid collection of photographs, letters, poetry, fiction, interviews and memoir, the Wild Good offers a multidimensional portrait of the many sustaining forms of love among lesbians. In forty-five text pieces divided into five sections, editor Beatrix Gates seeks to describe the complex constellations lesbians inhabit: from friendship to family, from body and spirit to the legacy of community, and to romantic and sexual expressions of love. The Wild Good is a rich testimony woven from the work of prominent figures like Dorothy Allison, Chrystos, Jewelle Gomez and Audre Lorde, and emerging talents like Shay Youngblood, Eileen Myles, Lisa Kron and Gale Jackson. Unique to the Wild Good are thirty-five duotone photographs by acclaimed lesbian photographers and filmmakers that provide a moving visual commentary on lesbian love. Encompassing both landscapes and portraits, both intimate family moments and erotic still lifes, the Wild Good brings the scope and power of lesbian photography to life in images from artists like Margaret Randall, Luz Maria Gordillo, Barbara Hammer, Shu Lea Cheang and Zoe Leonard.
