The Lesbian Photo Book That Changed Everything

Author: Advocate.com Editors

Revolutionary at that time, JEB photographed lesbians from different ages and backgrounds in their everyday-lives — working, playing, raising families, and striving to remake their worlds. The photographs were accompanied by testimonials from the women pictured in the book, as well as writings from icons including Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, and more. Eye to Eye signaled a new way of seeing — moving lesbian lives from the margins to the center and reversing a history of invisibility. More than just a book, it was an affirmation of the existence of lesbians that helped to propel a political movement. Reprinted for the first time in 40 years, and featuring additional essays from former World Cup soccer player Lori Lindsey, and photographer Lola Flash, Eye to Eye is a faithful reproduction of a work that continues to resonate in the queer community and beyond. It will be released on March 23, 2021.
