Présentation de l'éditeur

In 1998, Ellen Jong was at a party on Canal Street in New York’s TriBeCa. As the bathroom line was too long, she headed to the street to take a leak. Jong squatted just behind some junked furniture on the curb of the sidewalk, and her pee trickled down like wet paint on a wall. Being a photographer, she had her Yashica T4 with her, and turned around to her suspect puddle to capture what she thought looked more like blood in a murder scene than pee. Since that fateful urination, Jong has captured her tracks through New York, Miami, Shanghai, and Mexico, the countryside, woodside, and seaside, under moonlight and opposite sunset.

Since then, Jong has amassed a sizeable body of work, a collection of images that fuse documentary, landscape, and fine art photography and portraiture into a uniquely personal statement. The work, exhibited at various galleries, is all gathered in Pees on Earth; a collection of images that are at once challenging, provocative, intriguing, courageous, amusing, and beautiful. These images capture not only Jong’s rebellious exuberance, but also offer a comment on what constitutes the personal and the political. Pees on Earth is a statement about the ownership of self, of sensuality, of humanity, and of womanhood—all expressed with beauty and a great deal of humor.

There’s a sigh of relief on every page of Pees on Earth. Jong’s photographs assert her place on the planet and, because we all share the act, they assert ours too. It is a manifesto for our collective existence, a cry for all sentient beings: “I am! I pee!”

What a surprise, another book being reviewed by people who haven't read it. 1 novembre 2007

Ellen Jong, Pees on Earth (PowerHouse, 2006)

It amuses me to no end that the Library of Congress had to create a "Urination-Pictorial Works" subject heading just to accommodate this book. It's raised something of a firestorm of criticism from the "yuck, all bodily functions are evil!" crowd, predictably, despite the fact that there are very few pictures here where you can actually tell what's going on (this is, according to the notes, by design); most of these would be perfectly suitable for hanging on the wall of your office, and none of your co-workers (unless they're pervs just like you) would be the wiser.

To me, the basic question this book is asking is "can great photographs be made from any subject matter?", and the answer is a somewhat qualified yes. Somewhat qualified because the photographs here are inconsistent, quality-wise. When they're on, they're really on (the front and back cover photographs are great, and the one on the inside back cover is that single photograph that takes a whole book and gives it a new dimension), but when they're not, they're just kind of there. I guess this is to be expected when the very subject matter of your work leads to pictures being taken furtively and on-the-fly. Still, a great idea for a concept book. Sure to be a hit with the appropriate fetish crowd. But you normals might want to take a look, too-- there really are some amazing pictures to be found between these covers. *** ½

Ellen Jong and the appropriately named Annie Sprinkle have infiltrated the male-dominated world of public urination. This book is an amazing and very transgressive work - showing a woman "marking her territory" in a variety of different settings, and breaking the taboo that only guys are supposed to pee outside and women are supposed to hold it in til they get to a proper restroom.
Interesting experimentation with a particular subject matter. A work of art? Difficult to say. 30 novembre 2014

I'm not going to pretend like I am qualified or sophisticated enough to judge this book from an artistic standpoint. Stick figures are about the extent of my artistic capabilities.

Instead, I'll just try to take a look at what this book is in my own opinion. Your mileage may vary.

I think it's a fairly safe assumption to make that the vast majority, if not every person who purchases this book does so out of an interest, or at least curiosity, for the subject matter being presented here.

I could try to put any number of poetic or cryptic spins on summarizing this book to make it sound like it is something different than it is, but the truth is it is a photographic book with a number of mostly tame, tasteful pictures of a woman urinating in public.

As has been mentioned elsewhere, if you saw most of these images on their own you wouldn't even know what you are looking at, but I feel like trying to camouflage the nature of these images is to deny them their identity. Not only that, but seeing any of these images on their own is a pretty unlikely scenario in the first place.

The interviews with Annie Sprinkle were interesting, but fairly sparse. The bulk of the book is photography, for better or worse. There was enough text from cover to cover to get the sense that Ellen Jong enjoyed her exploration of the subject as she put together the photography that would eventually compose this book, and honestly I think that is good enough for a publication like this. It's not trying to be anything more than what it is.

As far as the quality of the imagery presented in the book, well, that's a matter of opinion more than anything, I think. Personally, there are a few images that really stand out in a good way for one reason or another, most of them are mildly interesting but nothing too remarkable, and a few of them are strange/unusual and I don't care for them. These kinds of determinations are all going to depend on your expectations for the book and your personal tastes of course.

There are a variety of different angles and perspectives that the photos were taken in, and it did make me wonder what the scenes might have looked like were I a bystander observing the whole process nearby. I'm sure some of them must have been comical to watch. Some of the scenery captured in the photography is lovely too, and there is a good variety of locales that the images appear to have been taken at. In other words, I felt that the creativity utilized was a strong point of the book.

I would have liked to have seen a bit more information printed about each picture though. There is a section towards the back of the book that tells a bit about each image next to a small thumbnail of the image, but I think I would have preferred to see this kind of information in a small sidebar or on the page opposite the actual full sized image, rather than having to go to the small section in the back of the book for it.

For some of the pictures, the information section towards the back goes into a good amount of detail about what was going on at the time, for others it's scarcely more than 10 words. It might be said that it's better to let the picture do the talking, and I guess that's fair in most cases, but I can't help but feel like each and every one of these pictures probably had a story behind it, like Ellen and her friends go into during some of the lengthier descriptions, and it would have been nice to have a good sized story to go with all of them.

All in all though, I don't know that you could label this as artistic or erotic, risque or offensive.... what defines these kinds of qualities is all a matter of perspective and personal opinion. The evidence is clear that Ellen Jong explored a side of herself not often acknowledged by the majority of people, let alone traversed, and she documented the experiences she had along the way with her photography in a fairly tasteful manner, considering the subject material. This book is simply her way of sharing those experiences with anyone interested, and in that I think it has succeeded.

Disgusting waste of paper 10 décembre 2006

I saw this book at B&N and I guess people WILL buy just about anything. Really gross and juvenile.
