Books: "Orgasm" in Words and Pictures, From Linda Troeller

Daylight   Monday October 20, 2014

New York-based photographer Linda Troeller and ethnographer Marion Schneider have teamed for another groundbreaking look at human sexuality with the book Orgasm: Photographs and Interviews. A follow-up to their 1998 book The Erotic Lives of Women, the new book focuses on 25 women of different ages, nationalities, and cultural and social backgrounds, who were each asked not only to define what orgasms meant to them, but also to remember their first orgasms and to reenact them for Troeller’s camera.

The work will be featured at the Barrister’s Gallery in New Orleans and elsewhere.   Read the full Story >>
