Woman Touch, Olga Volodina's first exhibition in Bangkok, was a simple yet exciting way to express the beauty of a nude female body through the medium of black and white photography. MTF exhibition is a kind of sequence project that utilize the same aesthetic of sensual mood to show transgender bodies as an art object.
In the civilized modern world, a choice of sexual orientation is the right of every human. People learn how to live among the variety of opinions, attitudes and sexual preferences.
In general we have to learn tolerance.
As long as transgenders have been existing artists and
photographers mostly use this phenomenon in art to provoke or shock their audience with documental realism often
underlined with some strong social meanings.
Photographer Olga Volodina chose another way.
She prefered the style of classic black & white nude
photography that doesn’t attract with its play of colors and devoid of any social context . Here attention to composition, lighting and the beauty of a not-so-obvious-yet human body is more important. There are just calm and sensual nude
pictures shot the same way as classic nude female
photography. It lets a viewer to keep attention undistracted and see the beauty of a transgender body the same way as a male or female naked body.
