T. Chick McClure is an openly transgender fine art photographer, Grammy award-winning director and we are both alumni of the prestigious School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Born female-bodied to a conservative military-household, Chick spent his early life feeling "wrong". He escaped into his art, depicting himself as male in his drawings as early as 3 years old. In his adulthood Chick came to focus on photography as a medium, exploring themes of gender, masculinity, vulnerability and authenticity. I've been following his transition for about a year, and was drawn to the remarkable honesty in his work.
