book_5519websmallIn the book you feel and see the emersion of  Christer Strömholm into the subculture of  transsexuals in the Place Blanche area of 1950s’ Paris.


I love that there is no judgement,  just respect and curiosity in his images.  book_5516websmallbook_5510websmallbook_5493websmallbook_5492websmallbook_5481websmall

    Beautiful images. You said it best, respect and curiosity and that is exactly what every photographer should try to mentain.

    Book looks like a must see, would love to add it to my library.

    I think you mean “immersion in. “. Or maybe “emergence from”?

    Its “Les Amies” and not “Les Aimes”.

    The sensuality of the images are elegant and captivating presented with the utmost respect.

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Arresting. I love the images. They are raw, textural, real. And the WOMEN are so gloriously feminine and sexy. Thank you for sharing!

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter
    a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
