Inspiring a Movement: Photographs by JEB (Joan E. Biren)


Joan E. Biren (JEB), an internationally-recognized documentary photographer and filmmaker, has been chronicling the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals for more than 30 years. A self-taught photographer, JEB is the author of two groundbreaking collections: Eye to Eye: Portraits of Lesbians (1979) and Making a Way: Lesbians Out Front (1987). In 1997 George Washington University organized Queerly Visible, a retrospective exhibition of her photographs, which traveled the country. JEB's photographs are included in the collections of the Library of Congress, The George Washington University, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, Smith College, and more.
