The two women are in fact one man - a transvestite, and a woman friend. These people understandably, do not want to be further abused than they already are by society and thus shy away from being photographed, and I was not going to contribute to that in the sense of exploitation. This was an image they were comfortable with, taken after I had gained their trust. Using a small and less imposing digital camera helped. In this instance, we have the additional layer of the treatment of the image as every pixel has been actually written or ‘painted with light’. To me this represents a more photographic technique than the traditional methods of making photographic images. I want to question and explore the medium and see what it can deliver as far as aesthetic explorations.
