We are pleased to announce Lia, an exhibition of 30 prints by photographer Mark Woodward, documenting the four year transgender transition of Antonio Romero to Angelita, Lia for short. This series of photographs are a quiet, sensitive, portrayal of Lia’s complex journey from male to female. Through this collaboration the photographer and subject have developed a friendship that has allowed Woodward to honestly capture deeply personal moments of challenge, success, joy, and contemplation. In doing so he has avoided the more obvious images that are traditionally shown when addressing transgender transitions and gender fluidity. The exhibition is curated in collaboration with fellow Parsons student Megan Paetzhold, a curator, photographer and writer based in New York City. Mark Woodward, a British and American citizen, was born and raised in Hong Kong. He currently splits his time between New York City and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
