Portraits of Transgender Sex Workers in Rio de Janeiro

Erotica // Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Jessica Rosen is an American portrait and fashion photographer living in Sao Paulo, Brazil. About her series, The girls from Avenida Mem de Sa, Rosen writes: ‘I have spent the past three years working closely with a community of transgender sex workers in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. All of the subjects of these photos were born biologically male and have since taken steps toward feminizing their identity. These photographs are a celebration of beauty both masculine and feminine and everything in between and beyond.’
