During my years as a performer I have changed looks and persona, constantly. My looks always contains a persona. It can emerge out of a certain costume, a wig or an accessory. Or just out of my emotional state at that given moment. Being partly constructed and also emotionally rooted, ramonas many faces are both authentic and designed.
A look without an inner awareness, is “dead” to me. When asked, I call myself a transvestite-performer/artist. Partly because I have lived as a transvestite for a while, and also because the word transvestite is more authentic and confronting, compaired to the “funny” and superficial word drag-queen.
This is a series of self-portraits, taken at home, or before and after performances. Some of the photos have been developed digitally. And one is a digital painting. Three photos have been shot by others.
