Misha - I Was a Boy
Davy Priestley has a deep interest in people, he is deaf and understands how it feels to be in a minority group, and from this background he has investigated the world of Transgendered people, capturing relaxed images of their everyday lives. His positive attitude towards, and close involvement with the models make his imagery stand out as both real and honest. He started interviewing and photographing transgender women to document their journeys of self-discovery. He investigated what kind of women they were striving to become and the stories they wanted to tell. Considering their thoughts on femininity and the influence of society. Davy believes a successful artist never "captures" a moment but actually "releases" it to others.
