Kiss of Fire: A Romantic View of Sadomasochism
Consortium Book Sales & Dist, 2003 - Photography - 103 pages
A rare view of the romantic side of sadomasochism, Barbara Nitke's photographs explore the intimacy, trust, and great joy found in these relationships. The work is presented here in a beautiful edition of about 70 duotones, with text by A.D. Coleman.
Barbara Nitke is also a co-plaintiff in an important challenge to the Communications Decency Act, a law limiting free expression on the Internet. The case is expected to go to the Supreme Court and is already garnering considerable national press.
A.D. Coleman is one of the most important photography critics of our time. He has published numerous books and collections of essays; his internationally syndicated columns and essays have appeared in publications such as ARTnews and the New York Times.
