Publisher's Description
Tiane Doan na Champassak's photography is driven by a fascination for gender identity issues. For over a decade he found himself returning to two small towns in South India, where growing numbers of hijras, eunuch, transvestites and transgenders gather each year as Aravanis, worshippers of a local deity, for a festival filled with celebrations of a religious, mythological and sexual nature. Champassak's distinctive use of flash illuminates his encounters in the dingy hotels temporarily turned into brothels.
