Entry Description

In a previous documental work for an NGO, I made a photography work about trans in Costa Rica (transgender, transsexual, transvestite). After this work, I kept making some photography work about trans for work and as a personal passion as well. I found the topic of Trans to be very interesting and enriching; in the personal level, it opened a new world perspective to me. I think it is very important to make our society more aware of this minority group, which is often vulnerable to social stigma, discrimination and violence.
