Lesbian Art Herstory: Nudes by German photographer Germaine Krull


Description: Vídeo de la exposición de Germaine Krull realizada en Estudio ARTIZAR, incluida en el programa de FOTONOVIEMBRE 2011 de Tenerife.

In the 1920s bisexual Germaine Krull (1897-1985) photographed sensual and sexual encounters between women. She is said to have had love affairs with her models and I assume that her photographs of nudes were made more for her own pleasure than for the gaze of men.
