This series of portraits of elderly waria (Indonesian transgender male to female) is part of a 4 years long documentary projects on this community. I've decided to portray them with a direct flash light covered with two gelatine colors: red and blue/green, in order to represent their duality female-male. They have so interesting faces with wrinkles and home-made silicon injections in chins and on cheekbones that, at a certain extent, make them all look alike, in their tireless attempt to align their female soul with their male body. They have chosen by themselves how to pose in front of the camera.
