Summary of Project:

“For three years between 2007 and 2009, I was a sometime woman called Shauna. I’d inhabited the persona of a ladyboy” – Sean Lee

“This small and simple publication proves that it doesn’t take much to make a great photobook. The cinematic images and excellent sequencing tell us, at first glance, about photographer Sean Lee’s experiences as a ‘ladyboy;’ but on closer reading this work is also about the beautiful complexity we all hold within us, and one man’s journey of discovery into himself. There are moments of staggering honesty and beauty in this book”. – Daniel Boetker Smith
