~Inkjet on recycled paper
During the first years of my transition on testosterone I was obsessed with capturing every noticeable change that occured. I devised a camera and lighting set-up I could repeat as time passed. But as the days that I forgot about my transness became the majority, and I became occupied with ‘being’ rather than changing, I stopped taking these photographs, leaving the project behind.
However those absent years weren’t an issue after all.
During the first two years of my transition I set my base colors: cyan, magenta and yellow, for my embodiment as a man. In the years after my ‘man-ness’ was set, the color black came in place, as the key on which the other colors were aligned, adding depth as I gained experience living my true colors.
