Title Manly affections : the photographs of Robert Gant, 1885-1915
Author Brickell, Chris, 1971
Summary "Robert Gant was an English immigrant, an amateur photographer and a lover of men. Manly Affections takes us into Gant's lost world of small town New Zealand. What happened when an artistic 'new chum' and his camera met the rugby and cricket playing locals? Manly Affections explores men's intimate lives in 230 images. A visual history of place, gender and sexuality, this book poses new questions about settler masculinity. As sitters for the camera in the small towns of Masterton and Greytown, Gant's companions crossed the lines between friendship, emotion, pleasure and eroticism"--Publisher statement.
