Del LaGrace Volcano (formerly named Della Grace) continues to adopt .

Del LaGrace Volcano (formerly named Della Grace) continues to adopt their true self through their name and gender. After marrying a queer man, Johnny Volcano, Del took on their current name to challenge the "bi-gendered status qu. Del and Johnny Volcano have two children, Mika Alexis and Nico Ilon, to which Del refers to themselves as a "MaPa".

Del paints for us a picture of how the conceptualisation of queer femininity has emerged over the recent past. The picture is both a portrait of a personal and queer community journey. Del describes the way in which he, as a photographer has boundaried his own portrait making with ethical principles which extol the virtue and uniqueness of the femme. Expect to see pictures which tell their own story, and not Del’s. The diversity of the contributors to this collection is impressive (Michelle Tea, Kate Bornstein, Valerie Mason-John to name a few).

"Intimate, audacious, and exploding with interpretive trajectories, these images reach beyond their edges to re-invision projects of queer visiual testimony."—Juana Maria Rodriguez, University of California, Berkeley

Going beyond identity politics, Femmes of Power is a photographic tribute to a diverse range of queerly feminine subjects whose powerful and intentional redress explodes the meaning of femme for the twenty-first century. Celebrating the growing femme presence, here you will meet members Atlanta’s Femme Mafia, San Francisco’s Harlem Shake Burlesque, and Paris’ Fem Menace.

Femmes of Power features both everyday heroines and many queer feminist icons, including Michelle Tea, Virginie Despentes, Amber Hollibaugh, Marla Stewart, Lydia Lunch, Kate Bornstein, and Lois Weaver.

The first book of its kind, Femmes of Power unsettles the objectifying male gaze on femininity and presents femmes as speaking subjects and high-heeled theorists. Look closer—these powerful, sexy, and sincerely ironic feminine figures are larger than life, bravely challenging femininity’s negative connotations and replacing femme invisibility with a fresh new face for femme-inism.

I was hoping for a book that I could identify with. When I was in college in the early '90s, I wrote a paper on one of then-Della Grace's images. I can't recall the exact one, but they appeared in a journal called Perversity and were in B&W. When I opened "Femmes of Power," which I bought for Volcano's photography, I thought, Nan Goldin, except everyone is smiling. Volcano, no doubt, would be loathe to admit any parallel to Golden, however. I must admit that I look at the book quite often, trying to figure out what it is that bothers me about the images, as a human being, as a person, as someone one would call "femme." I did read a bit of the text, which I was forced to put down almost immediately because I was afraid it would contaminate my pure, literary mind. Take that as you will. Did the author actually write "femme witticism"? Had I simply imagined this phrase and inserted it myself? Do we really need to have every aspect of our personalities subdivided, catalogued, and now according to "butch" or "femme"? What is the difference between a femme and butch witticism? I wish someone would have explained.

Femmes of Power is fabulous! An absolute first of a kind-- and no doubt the first of many more femme photo books to follow. As a big femme myself, I found the book super affirming, increasing my own femme pride. Del has a great eye. I love him and his work. Ulrika's text is incisive, and penetrates deeply into the delicious, flamboyant femme mystique. She's definitely a femme who knows her power. Del queers femme up for posterity. A must for femmes, butches all other permutations, and hermutations alike.

This book is a phenomenal resource for anyone interested in queer femmes. The photographs are beautiful, the interviews are fascinating, and both play close attention to issues of race, class and sexuality as well as gender. *Femmes of Power* is a much needed addition to the world of queer theory and you won't be disappointed. It makes a great companion to photographer Del LaGrace Volcano's earlier work *The Drag King Book* but also stands alone. I have searched far and wide to try to build a library of books on femmes and this is the most visually beautiful one I have found.
