Book description:

"Opposing nothing, iO Tillett Wright's political activity is covert. Social definitions are exposed, explored, traded, discarded... Gender, race, sexuality - nothing is black & white here.

The subjects of iO's pictures are not marginal... They are central..., but most importantly, like the photographer herself, they are fluid, dynamic, beyond labeling (post-existential), they cleave and share identities, i.e, they are alive.

In the images of 'Lose My Number', intimacy is paramount... ...Nothing is staged, and there is no separation between life and art."
