PhotoQ Bookshop is very happy to host a double book presentation by Nelson Morales, the Mexican photographer who in his work focuses on gender issues. Earlier this year his two books were published: Musas Muxe, about the special gender fluidity in his home region of Oaxaca, and Fantastic Woman, about a senior transgender living in North Carolina. Both books received wide acclaim.
Morales is visiting Amsterdam to receive the first prize in the Stories category of the Pride Photo Award with his series Musas muxe. More information on this award and the annual exhibiton opening on 1 November 2019 at De Filmhallen in Amsterdam: www.pridephotoaward.org
Musas Muxe addresses the Muxes – ‘third gender’ – in an exploration of the cultural, sexual and personal identity of the author and of this community in Oaxaca, México.
Fantastic Woman is a photo book portraying Marsha Tegard (67), that mixes old family photos and recent work by Nelson Morales. The book is printed on different kinds of paper and manually bound into a special edition.
