The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art in collaboration with Anthology Editions presents an intergenerational conversation between photographers JEB (Joan E. Biren) and Ka-Man Tse. This conversation, inspired by JEB’s newly reissued publication “Eye to Eye: Portraits of Lesbians” (1979), will speak to both artists’ photographic practices which are grounded in identity, visibility, and bringing queer narratives to the foreground.
JEB (Joan E. Biren) is a photographer, filmmaker, and activist known for her groundbreaking work chronicling LGBTQ+ lives. Her book, Eye to Eye: Portraits of Lesbians (1979), was reissued this year by Anthology Editions. JEB’s photographs were displayed on the façade of the Leslie-Lohman Museum, 2019-2020.

She is the recipient of the Robert Giard Fellowship, a Research Award from Yale University Fund for Lesbian and Gay Studies, the Aperture Portfolio Prize, and the Aaron Siskind Fellowship. Her monograph, narrow distances was published by Candor Arts.
