From the publisher: "Peek is the first survey of this rich visual resource of sexual and erotic imagery, which, until now, has been inaccessible to the general public. The 125 images presented here, along with accompanying texts by four scholars, demonstrate the various ways in which photography functioned at the institute. This fascinating and unprecedented publication makes clear the significance of Kinsey's lifework, placing the photographs in historical context and raising theoretical issues about Kinsey's directives as a researcher, collector, and interpreter of the photographic image."
