• Photography for intimacy, courage and rawness

    My name is Daphne Chan and I'm a Canadian artist, educator, speaker and photographer of Transparency: The Gender Identity Project: http://bit.ly/1HMP7J0 . I'm currently attending the New Media Narratives Program at International Center of Photography.

    I'm based in New York City and is available for private commissions.

    Each portrait is a collaboration between the subject and the artist and is created through an intimate artistic process resulting in a unique handmade fine art print.

Today I attended a virtual reality workshop that bordered on science fiction, received a request for a magazine interview, was invited to pitch a story on transgender issues and now I’m editing images for the upcoming issue of VYM Magazine. No rest for the wicked!

Here are a few photos from the Virtual Reality Workshop:

Today I was in the hospital to be with a friend who was scheduled for surgery. For a variety of reasons, she was denied this long awaited procedure and it did not go through. Based on the staff we spoke with, the phone calls made, the departments she had to deal with, it’s only reinforced the fact that so much more needs to be done to educate everyone about the particular needs of trans patients.

Why isn’t more being done? It was a long, confusing, emotional process and I don’t know what I can do to help her.

This was a quick exercise learning how to use the app Clips with existing Instagram photos. It’s called Reasons to Love New York and features events, friends, street photography and a soundtrack from an incredible artist who left us too soon.
