Body Alchemy: Transsexual Portraits
by Loren Cameron
Publisher's Description
Body Alchemy is Loren Cameron's intensely brave and personal portrait over her own transformation, thorugh hormones and surgery, into a physical male. Cameron has also photographed and interviewed many others who have travelled a similar path. Their collective insights are a compelling look at the centrality of identity and physicality in our lives.
Amazon.com Review
The idea of gender is no long as fixed as it once was: Tootsie, La Cage aux Folles, and Milton Berle saw to that. But none of this has prepared us for Loren Cameron's amazing portraits of transsexuals. Beautifully reproduced and complemented with notes and short essays, these portraits of women who are now men may startle, but they will also make you marvel at the genuine complexities of life, sex, and desire. Body Alchemy might have been a curiosity, like Diane Arbus's photographs of those outside the physical and cultural mainstream, but Cameron's art is so empathetic, so precise, that we are left in awe and with a new understanding of the realities of being human.
