Ausstellung trans*people of the world

Manuel Ricardo Garcia – Exhibition: Trans*people of the World
is an international project about Trans*people worldwide. I travelled the world for many years and took pictures of 50 Trans*people in their home cities – I portray each of them as special and beautiful in their own distinct ways, with their individual pride and strength, but also their vulnerabilities. Some of them live in countries where there is a trans* movement, others live in countries where they have to fight a terribly exhausting battle every day of their lives to survive.
