About the Author

JEB (Joan E. Biren), is an award-winning documentary photographer and filmmaker. She is best known for her groundbreaking work in chronicling the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. In 1979, Biren self-published her first book, Eye to Eye: Portraits of Lesbians, a pivotal work that documented the everyday lives of lesbians in the United States. Her second book, Making a Way: Lesbians Out Front, was released in 1987. JEB has been featured in many notable publications, including The New York Times, Vogue, and The Atlantic. Her photographs are in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution, the Leslie-Lohman Museum in New York, the national Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, and the Academy of Arts in Berlin, Germany among other places.
Lola Flash is an American photographer whose work focuses on subjects deemed invisible by society--interrogating gender, sexual, and racial norms. Her career began in the 1980s, documenting the social and political issues of the AIDS epidemic, later becoming an integral member of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power. Flash has produced a number of critically acclaimed series, including Salt, [sur]passing, and Legends, and has been exhibited in The Bronx Museum of the Arts, Pen + Brush, and Victoria and Albert Museum.
Lori Lindsey is a retired American soccer player. With a career spanning thirteen years, Lindsey was a member of the United States Women's National Team, representing the team at both the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup and the 2012 Olympics. She is currently a commentator for the National Women's Soccer League, ESPN, Major League Soccer, and United Soccer League. Also a public speaker, she has traveled the world advocating awareness and equality for women and the LGBT community, in both sports and society overall.

Reviews

The momentous reception that awaited Eye to Eye on its release demonstrated the burning desire for authentic representation. JEB published the images widely, in books and on postcards, posters, calendars, in newspapers, and exhibited in her touring "Dyke Show". Women wrote letters thanking her for saving their lives, recalling how, after seeing her images, an unfamiliar feeling of pride overwhelmed them. Eye to Eye provided women with a mirror to reflect the possibilities of what they could be or what they already were. -i-D/ Vice, February 2021
