Day 3 – Making you think..

Published February 19, 2014 by Katier Scott

Don’t worry folks, your not going to be getting my random ramblings every day!!! I wouldn’t want to bore you to tears :).

But embarking on a project like this sure makes you think a lot. It’s a long project, dictated purely by time, but along it will be landmarks and it’s going to be interesting to see when they occur and how I feel about it. 

First time I see breast growth for instance, or fairer hair, or even things like sunbathing in a Bikini!! 

It’s also going to be fun and interesting sharing it with you folks and hopefully you’ll all get questions answered that mean, if you meet a transexual you will understand a little of what they are going through.

A New Journey

Published February 15, 2014 by Katier Scott

Monday will mark the start of a new journey for me as I start the hormone therapy needed to progress down my path as a transwoman.

This stage will see physical changes to my body and being a photographer and journalist I realised these changes would make an interesting topic and potential book. Inspired in a way by previous works such as “Putting Myself in the Picture” by Jo Spence, this work will hopefully provide an interesting insight into what changes occur when influenced by hormones.

The project will take a minimum of 12 months during which time I hope to take one self portrait a week. At the end of project I will create a book documenting the journey. The project will end at a point where I feel that, that stage, of my journey is completed sufficiently for the book to be written.

Unlike my previous project, 50-at-50, I have not started a kickstarter project for this one as I was less than successful last time.
