The Girl got Balls is an ongoing portrait project of Ladyboy (transgender men) in Thailand who come from all social classes and ages.|
Their bodies tell of their physical and emotional struggle to change, to become what they have always dreamt of: though born as boys, most of them desire to look like glamorous international supermodels or famous movie stars. These portraits try to capture their intense personal struggle in making their transformation. Behind the ladyboys’ dreams are fundamental human issues that touch upon identity, body, beauty, sexuality, race and the longing to be accepted.
During the past years the series has been exhibited at several international photo festivals, won the New York Photo Awards and taken third prize at the Dutch Award – Zilveren Camera.
