Manly Affections

Small-town Wairarapa in the 1880s might be the last place you'd expect to find a hotbed of manly affection, but through the lens of gay photographer Robert Gant, Chris Brickell delves into the intimacy that existed in this unlikely locale. This hardcover book features 230 photos of men hugging, holding hands, hanging out and exchanging meaningful looks, and redefines the meaning of colonial masculinity..
