Per info, s.n.
My new book takes a new look at intimate relationships between men in colonial New Zealand. Manly Affections: The Photographs of Robert Gant, 1885-1915, examines the work of a small-town photographer whose images urge us to rethink aspects of colonial masculinity. A visual history of place, gender and sexuality, Manly Affections explores men's intimate lives in 230 images. Most international compilations of early photographs of men together contain anonymous figures, but the identities of many of these men are known, and Manly Affections builds up a picture of lives and relationships in a particular setting. At the same time, the local met the global: Robert Gant's photographs have similarities with the work of Sicily-based Wilhelm von Gloeden and Bostonian Fred Holland Day. As sitters for the camera, Gant's companions crossed the lines between friendship, emotion, pleasure and eroticism. Manly Affections, published by Genre Books, is available from selected independent booksellers, and through the book's website:
