"... the scoptophilic instinct is auto-erotic: it has in-
deed an object, but that object is the subject's own
body. It is only later that the instinct comes (by way
of comparison) to exchange this object for the anal-
ogous one of the body of another. [followed by]
abandonment of the object and a turning of the scop
tophilic instinct towards a part of the subject's own
person; therewith a transformation to passivity and
the setting up of a new aim-that of being looked at."

-Sigmund Freud
"'Instincts and Their Vicissitudes" (1915)

A distinctively offbeat work for which Malanga obtained previously unpublished images from over thirty major artists and then interviewed them.  The images and edited interviews combine in a charged exploration of the relationship between photography and voyeurism.  The volume includes work by Peter Beard, William Burroughs, Arthur Elgort, Peter Hujar, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Francesca Woodman to name a few.
