Exist Otherwise: The Life and Works of Claude Cahun
This is the first work in English to tell the full story of Claude Cahun’s art and life. It both recounts her life and analyses her complex writings and images. Featuring striking illustrations by Cahun and other renowned photographers, as well as writings never before translated into English, Exist Otherwise: The Life and Works of Claude Cahun brings Cahun’s ideas and feelings to life and contributes to our understanding of photography, Surrealism and the histories of women artists and queer culture.
