From Francis Molina’s review at Musée Magazine:
Transcendents, a photographic collection by Mariette Pathy Allen recently published by Daylight Books, is a study of liminal spaces; between genders, between countries, between past and present, and even between this world and the next. Allen, a seasoned photographer, writer, and social activist, has been involved with gender-nonconforming subjects since the late 70s. Her body of work, which centers specifically on genderfluid and transgender individuals, endeavors to bring awareness and acceptance to an intensely marginalized community. Her recent stint in Burma and Thailand photographing Spirit Mediums continues to promote tolerance and understanding not only of gender non-forming individuals but of an ancient animistic practice that exists in a world apart from the West.
