Continuum is a portrait project which documents Transmen and Transwomen living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where they face the risk of persecution according to laws which criminalize all walks of life within the LGBT community. This body of work was created as means to look past labels like Female-to-Male and Male-to-Female, to revisit existing dialogues on sex and sexuality while creating room for new understandings on gender identity– as well as to grasp how gender is as indefinite and varied as the human face. This is a project on beauty which aims to challenge what we think we know about who we are, and how we are meant to be.
Continuum is 30 pages long, and sized A5.
