Andrej Reiser documented the intimate and hidden world of trans sex workers in Harmburg in the late 1970s. The resulting images are in a way a documentary photographer’s dream, having no sense of either prejudice or voyeurism. Considered a monumental manifesto for sexual tolerance, this lesser-known, underrated publication offers an insight into a highly vulnerable community, with interviews, pictures of their daily life plus an essay by Peter Gorsen on the deconstruction of gender.
