"A Georgia Wildlife"
Transgender Art Photo Series

The "Georgia Wildlife" transgender art photo series was inspired by images from Nan Golden.

Most of these photos were taken during the 1990's - when I was intently active in the 24/7 gay-trans nightclub scene in Atlanta, GA.

Most nights I would take ecstasy while our clubbing and dancing - which made it all but impossible to go to sleep upon returning home after the sun came up. I would shoot photos for my transgender website until I reached exhaustion - and finally crawl into bed.

Sometimes, I would stop-off at a remote location during the drive back home and shoot such photos.

I think this series shares the both the and ugliness of transgender life.
