From the series "Big Face, Transgender Intimate Portraits". A series of decontextualized street portraits taken in informal circumstances and with natural light, using an extreme close-up as the main format to create uncomfortable results for the viewers. Working in an intimate close-up, these portraits destabilize the conventional notions of male and female faces through presenting the real face of the LGBT community in Mexico City.

    I think the concept is given more impetus with the visual detection of imperfections on the skin, in this and many of the other similar portraits. I think, albeit subjectively, real woman would be more conscious of those imperfections but in this case that consciousness seems secondary to the concept and context of identifying physically, cognitively and emotionally with the opposite gender.
