Planetary Body is an intimate collection of self portrait photography works of Samuel’s body post top surgery.
This photo series was created to reclaim the space Samuel occupies, while also illuminating the reality of his trans body as a transitional space in itself. These photos were created when Samuel was 10 months post-op, a month before he underwent a revision surgery, before his body would shift and change, once again.
This body of work was created in mentorship with Mx Kieran Butler, during Samuel’s Professional Experience Project for UNSW Art & Design in 2019. It was later exhibited as a part of Samuel’s first solo show in 2020.
First Edition of 50.
Digitally printed in 2020.
A5 size (148 x 210mm)
Each book is numbered and signed by Samuel
