Angela : Angel

 Angel Angela is a series of pictures of my friend, a transgender woman.. she asked me photograph her and at first I wasn’t sure how to depict and do her story justice so we spoke about it for a long time. She came from a very macho working class northern family background and so the transition wasn’t an easy one particularly at that time in the 90’s .. so through this discourse we decided the work was all about acceptance,  the images should depict a cis woman and trans woman accepting themselves and each other so I projected another woman on to her and the meld together, kiss and give a sigh of relief and love… these were then printed onto mirror polished steel 6ft x 4ft so that when you view the work you become part of it.
