Sophie BlueThis project documents the life of Sophie blue. Sophie is a post-op transsexual, dominatrix prostitute with a 9 year old son. Poverty and addiction are issues explored throughout my project as well as the impact of recent benefit cuts resulting in Sophie's need to turn to prostitution. Taking a 'fly on the wall approach' when documenting Sophie's life I embedded myself into her daily life and photographed the many ups and downs over a period of a year. The project explores the conflict between the role she plays as father and escort, the book consist of images taken by not only myself but her Son Adian and her client 'Steve the slave'. Nearing the end of my project Sophie sadly found out her liver and kidneys are badly damaged and she will need a transplant in the near future.
