Photographer Dan Mouer wants to capture openly gender-variant people in his new project TransPosed: Portraits from Real Life. He’s currently seeking participants within 100 miles of Richmond. He intends to use the photos in a gallery exhibit and in a book.
“My aim is to illustrate the people part without a lot of emphasis on the trans part of my subjects’ identities,” Mouer states on his website.
For each subject, I want to make a posed but informal “environmental” portrait in a setting of the subject’s choosing. This portrait will then be augmented by a folio of candid shots showing the subject in his or her familiar surroundings, with friends or family for instance, or on the job, or at play, or in the club scene…whatever the subject feels is best for expressing their personality and identity.
