The gay gaze

The gay gaze

This project I photographed Denis Kehoe the author and a transgender together with a gay man who is in love and looks in an intense feeling of longing with him as he transforms himself into being Ester, a woman from the twenties.

Esther Raquel Minsky was born out of a fourth novel by author Denis Kehoe, tentatively titled The Wandering Women of Warsaw, a story about the lives of a group of Polish Jewish women in three cities: Warsaw, Dublin, and Rio de Janeiro between the years 1880 and 1916.
