Artist Statement
What is male? What is female? What are the preconceived notions that govern modern day sexuality, gender and perception? This photo essay projection accompanied with a voiceover by the subject aims to delve into these questions during an intimate transgender transformation, while also investigating topics of racism, immigration, childhood and relationships.
“You like what you like…and sometimes you’re surprised with what you like.”
