Other Printers: Making Images Read as Lesbian

Video (53:25): Other Printers: Making Images Read as Lesbian, a lecture by dr. Laura Guy (UK). Video by The Courtauld, a centre for the teaching, research of art history and a major public gallery in London.

‘This talk focuses on a group of photographers who shared a desire to make images that read as lesbian. This was how Tee Corinne described her collaborations with fellow photographer and one-time lover Honey Lee Cottrell. (…)It explores how witnessing through photographic means functioned for these photographers as a form of worldbuilding, one that happened between a scarcity of existing representations and the excesses of desire.’ – The Courtauld
