We will call transvestites people who not only "ride" with clothes of the opposite sex but also  they acquire their posture and attitude, but they do not demand the change of their sex even though some aesthetically transform certain parts of their body, Crossdressers who dress the opposite, and Transsexuals those who feel a discord between their physical body and your sense of self. Catherine Millot defines a transsexual as the person who requests the modification of her body in order to conform it to the appearances of the opposite sex, invoking the conviction that her true sexual identity is contrary to her biological sex.

We must not forget that this is not an exclusive phenomenon of our generation or of our times; we have information about its appearance in almost all cultures. Already in classical literature there are records of transsexualism, Herodotus himself refers to the existence of individuals with a desire to assume the role of the opposite gender.

The series I present here are portraits of transvestites, transsexuals and crossdressers.  I decided to portray them because I am captivated by the freedom of the one who expresses what he feels and expresses it beyond “what is inscribed in the expectations and presuppositions of behaviors, tastes and subjectivities established as standards in our society. ("The Transvestite and His Wife," Virginia Charles Prince).


I think it's a way to give them a voice, because the look builds the culture.


I admire them for their fortune in finding a way to express the TOTALITY.


Culture determines us. Photography too, but the portrait is a witness and I feel indebted as a photographer for portraying the dignity that has often been taken away from them through most eyes.
