Picturing Men: A Century of Male Relationships in Everyday American Photography

Picturing Men: A Century of Male Relationships in Everyday American Photography By John Ibson
2002 | 272 Pages | ISBN: 1588340554 | scanned PDF | 66 MB

There was a time in America when two men pictured with their arms wrapped around each other, or perhaps holding h&s, weren't necessarily seen as sexually involved-a time when such gestures could be seen simply as those of intimate friendship rather than homoeroticism.

Such is the time John Ibson evokes in Picturing Men, a striking visual record of changes in attitudes about relationships between gentlemen, soldiers, cowboys, students, lumberjacks, sailors, & practical jokers. Spanning from 1850 to 1950, the 142 everyday photographs that richly illustrate Picturing Men radiate playfulness, humor, & warmth. They portray a lost world for American men: a time when their relationships with each other were more intimate than they commonly are today, regardless of sexual orientation. Picturing Men starkly contrasts the calm affection displayed in earlier photographs with the absence of intimacy in photos from the mid-1950s on. In doing so, this lively, accessible book makes a significant contribution to American history & cultural studies, gender studies, & the history of photography.
