Portraits of Him
These portraits of men identifying as transgender focus on maleness. The work seeks to rethink gender and masculinity as fixed categories. By photographing my sitters using soft daylight, I sought to develop from the dominant aesthetics that speaks of ‘queer’. Suggesting a beauty of the male face as well as for the photographic portrait, Portraits of Him (2007) portrays a longing that culminates in the desire to become him.
