When you take a photograph of someone you see in front of you, a near-stranger with a similarly unconventional path as your own, does the relationship show through the lens and onto the page of the magazine? Can you accurately capture the struggle of two people existing on the peripheral, forced to live in paradoxical communities for short-term, bored survival? By making the photographs you see in Translady Fanzine, are we moving things forward and carving out a space to exist in as two oppositely-gendered transsexual artists or are we further alienating ourselves? I HOPE BOTH.
Totally impressed with Amos Mac’s Translady Fanzine. Order a copy here: the inanugural issue features Zackary Drucker as photographed around his childhood home, with his mother, in the snow, etc.
