Book Description: Matt Lambert's Keim is a special kind of secret. It's a book wrapped in whispers, gossip, innuendo, rumour, myth, mystique, and mystery. His featured "Lovers, Friends, Muses, a Husband" shares in the duplicity of this masterful young photographer's lens. That his chosen cover is an anonymous cock is telling. It's mid-ejaculation. A double exposure shows its arc of movement and a small shower of sperm glides off the right hand side of the page. This camboy view is analogous to Lambert's generational twist on the documentation of adolescent sexual behaviour. The photographic diary as rite of passage for artist and subject is a well-documented path. Larry Clark's autobiographical Tulsa (1971) shocked people by revealing the sinewy torsos of his teenage friends-protrusions of cocks, needles, and gun barrels penetrating the sexualized silhouette. It was not what society wanted to see, but thats denial for you. If Lambert has a photographic lineage, it's more likely to be Nan Goldin and her seminal book The Ballad of Sexual Dependency (1985). The Kodachrome-rich reds and browns, the shot-from-the-hip angles, and the incredible intimacy of "Roommates in Bed" (1981), or "Skinhead Having Sex in London" (1978), is much echoed in Lambert's work. However, that's where the influence ends, Lambert's worldview is not a ballad, nor is it about dependency. Whereas Goldin's study of family and relationship is about the politics of sexual intimacy, Lambert is apolitical-he starts and ends with sex. It's therefore independent of relationships. He doesn't care to reveal who is who. Unlike in Goldin's book, no one in Keim has a name, a status, or a sense of purpose in the action other than sexual. All are anon. Most are turned on. - Jefferson Hack.

Book Description: What makes a cult artist? Whether pioneering in their craft, fiercely and undeniably unique, or critically divisive, cult artists come in all shapes and guises. Some gain instant fame, others instant notoriety, and more still remain anonymous until a chance change in fashion sees their work propelled into the limelight. Cult Artists handpicks 50 notable figures in the modern art world and explores the creative genius that earned them the 'cult' label, while celebrating the works that made their names. From the iconic Salvador DalĂ­ and Frida Kahlo, to radical activists such as the Guerrilla Girls and Ana Mendieta. The artistic mediums explored are similarly varied, with sculptors, performance, graffiti and fine artists alike. From little knowns with small, devout followings, to superstars gracing the covers of magazines, each is special in their individuality and their ability to inspire, antagonise and delight. Cult Artists is an essential addition to any art lovers' library, as well as an entertaining introduction to our weird and wonderful art world.

Book Description: Nan Goldin's seminal second book The Other Side is finally back in print. Ever since the early 1970s Goldin has lived with and among drag queens, documenting both their glamour and their struggles. 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.... The people in these pictures are truly revolutionary; they are the real winners in the battle of the sexes because they have stepped out of the ring". In contrast to much of the early 90s 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.
