The photography book T* – Sguardo sui confini dell'identità di genere presents the works of eight young photographers, stemming from unique and surprising research into the issue of gender identity.
It represents the outcome of a project created around the transsexual community of Ravenna and is supported by the Council Office for Youth Policy and Equal Opportunity of the Municipality of Ravenna, with the contribution of CGIL Ravenna, CGIL Emilia-Romagna and the Regional Chambers of Labour.
The catalogue unites the results of this collective photographic path, in which each artist has developed a personal view: from portraits to reportage, from the study of space to reflections on places and the landscape, and from the subject of nudes to "drag".
The artists are Emiliano Biondelli, Christian Contin, Cesare Fabbri, Luca Gambi, Giovanni Lami, Filippo Molinari, Lia Pari and Valentina Venturi.
The extensive selection of works is accompanied by an essay by Porpora Marcasciano of MIT (Transsexual Identity Movement) who, in a discerning excursus, discusses the relationship between photography and the image of transsexuals, and a presentation by project curator Silvia Loddo, who illustrates the artists' different approaches to the subject.
The book was published for the T* – Sguardo sui confini dell'identità di genere exhibition at the Galleria Ninaṕ and Teatro Rasi, Ravenna, 10 January – 13 February 2009.
