Pride Project #14 – Tee Corrine

Abstract collage with flowers and patterns arranged to suggest female genitalia

Tee Corrine’s photographs depicted lesbian sexuality. She deliberately and respectfully portrayed women of all body types and sizes, disabilities, ages, and ethnicities. Perhaps her best-known work is the Cunt Coloring Book. It wasn’t uncommon for printers to refuse to work with her due to this subject matter.

Once, after a photograph was rejected with a rude critique that Corrine felt objectified her subjects by discussing a perceived age difference between them, a short hairstyle and drooping breasts, she vowed:

You fucker, I’ll make that picture famous”.

True to her word, the photo became a best-selling poster that year. Yessss.
