Davy Priestley has a deep interest in people; he is deaf and understands how it feels to be in a minority group so from this background he has investigated the world of Transgendered people capturing relaxed images of their everyday lives and creating compelling photographs with the use of low- lighting to achieve a natural, aesthetic look. His positive attitude towards and close involvement with the models make his imagery stand out as both real and honest.
In 2010, He started interviewing and photographing transgender women (male-to-females) about their journeys of self-discovery. He found the thought processes intrinsic to what kind of men they were striving to become, and what was informing their choices, were the stories he wanted to tell. He turned his lens to transgender women to photograph and document their thoughts on femininity and how societal pressures may have influenced their views on womanhood.
