Tee Corinne stands behind Beverly Brown in <i>The Saddest Picture I Ever Made.</i>

Tee Corinne stands behind Beverly Brown in The Saddest Picture I Ever Made.


Tee Corinne (1943-2006), the shy superstar of lesbian erotic art, died of liver cancer on August 27, 2006. Less than a year before, she lost her lover, Beverly Brown, to colon cancer.

During the last year of her life, Corinne completed a series of photographs of Brown and herself entitled Scars, Stoma, Ostomy Bag, Portacath: Picturing Cancer in our Lives. In her essay on the series, Corinne describes it as a "passionate work, a final act of love." Twelve of the 65 images that comprise Corinne's final project are included in this presentation.

For more information about the images in this series and their inspiration, please click here to read an illustrated essay by Tee Corinne.
