Body Alchemy

Transsexual Portraits

Loren Cameron is the author of multiple photography books about transgender identity. This book is an intimate self-portrait of a female-to-male transsexual photographer, accompanied by autobiographical text, the work includes photographs of genital reconstructions, with text by three FTMs who discuss how they feel about their surgery.

Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, Diane Arbus among many others have all trained their lenses on the transgendered figure. Never have the transgendered seriously photographed their own. Not until Loren Cameron, that is.
