Transsexual Portraits

Author: Loren Cameron
ISBN: 9781573440622

A photographic study of female-to-male (FTMs) transsexuals. Photographed by a transsexual, it brings an insider's eye to the subject matter. Using documentary style before-and-after photographs of FTM's in Cameron's transsexual community, accompanied by self-portraits and autobiographical text, the work invites the reader to experience this transformational rite of passage for themselves. It includes photographs of genital reconstructions, with text by three FTMs who discuss how they feel about their surgery.
