Description de l'ouvrage

27 avril 2006
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!”

4.0 étoiles sur 5 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. ***

5.0 étoiles sur 5 TO BOLDLY "GO" WHERE NO WOMAN HAS GONE BEFORE 2 janvier 2007

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.

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