The Spiv and the Architect

Richard Hornsey (University of Minnesota, 2010)

This book, subtitled "Unruly Life in Postwar London," uncovers the ways in which "Londons queer culture was influenced by postwar efforts to create model citizens," as the book's official page describes.

One chapter in the book is titled "Trial by Photobooth," and talks about the photobooth photos of the artist Francis Bacon. Much of the chapter can be read on Google Books.

Thanks to Gianmaria for the contribution.
