RELATIONSHIP: ZACKARY DRUCKER & RHYS ERNST. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2016. 158 pp. with 115 ills. (112 col.). 27 x 23 cm. LC 2015-49250 ISBN 9783791382487 In English.
Publisher's description: Documenting a six-year relationship with photos, video stills, letters and ephemera, this book is a stunning, intimate, and wholly original visual narrative by two rising artists who "put(s) queer consciousness on the front burner." Male becomes female. Female becomes male. Life becomes art. Private becomes public. A major feature of the 2014 Whitney Biennial, this series of photographs that the New York Times called "extremely provocative" explores ideas of transformation both physical and psychological. It's the story of two people in love, in a culture where the notion of gender has become more fluid and at a time when trans people have never been more accepted. As both subjects and creators of these images, Drucker and Ernst, both of whom transitioned gender, represent themselves in the midst of shifting subjectivities and identities. Collectively, these photographs, which have been compared to the work of Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, and Cindy Sherman, document the story of their romantic and creative collaboration over a period of six years. Simultaneously narrative and documentary, they touch on a host of dynamics, offering autobiography as ambiguity and unraveling identity as a construction.
