(from the press release)
To coincide with the annual Indignation Festival this September, Grey Projects presents ‘8 Women‘, portraits of transwomen who live and work in the Farrer Park, Little India neighbourhoods. Over several evenings, social researcher and photographer Grace Baey invited these women to present and pose themselves in a collaborative photo series, which we are proud to support.
About Grace Baey
Grace Baey (b. 1985) is a Singapore-based photographer with an interest in social issues. A human geographer by training, she turned to photography as a way of engaging with these issues through a more intimate lens. Of interest to her are questions of place, identity, and belonging. Her work deals with issues of social marginalization, with particular focus on low-waged migrant workers and the transgender community in Singapore. Earlier in 2015, she participated in Objectifs’ annual Shooting Home mentorship programme, as well as the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop in Bali.
The exhibition opens today and runs until 17 October at Grey Projects.
