Full Title: "Male Transvestite Prostitute Stabbed to Death on N.E. Side"

Part of a series in my Advanced Photography class this semester. It consists of six pieces reinterpreting microfische of newspaper articles in the early 90s. The source images are photos I took of microfische machinery and scans of the backs of people's heads. There were three known murders of transgender people in my city, San Antonio, within a three-year timespan. I feature articles about these three murders, and I juxtapose them with images showing the front page of the newspaper for that day in separate pieces within the series.

This is the complement to the previous piece in my gallery. A note about this project, especially in regard to this piece: I'm hoping that my presentation/reproduction of a harmful and innacurate portrayal of someone's transgender experience will highlight that harm and innaccuracy as such and not reproduce it. Please let me know if you believe it does the opposite.
