This year, I started a new project: taking portrait photos of people suited up in their chosen gender personas. As it turns out, people have been exploring more than one gender – masculine, feminine, androgyne, and so on. It’s strange how we relate to stories of gender persecution, depending on hair length, skirt or pants, gesture, body type… while having a blast being ourselves, dressing up, and taking photos. It’s too bad we are so harassed by society. I am located in Philadelphia and am looking for more people to photograph. If you are willing to suit up and have your photo taken, please send me an email. You can bring your own outfit or work with me to make an original costume.
