WE REACHED THE HUFFINGTON POST!!

AND THE ADVOCATE!! 

http://www.advocate.com/arts-entertainment/art/photography/2015/04/14/photos-becoming-visible-peru

The transgender community of Peru has been oppressed and marginalized by political and religious administrations. They are denied medical treatment, employment, education, official forms of identification, and there are no laws to protect them. They are being eradicated from their culture. The photography project, “Virgenes de la Puerta” is increasing the global dialog and visibility of transgender women in the cultural landscape of Peru. With our project in full swing we are asking you to assist us in our efforts. Our work has already created a large transformative buzz in Lima, and your assistance will directly impact their lives and protect members of the LGBTQ community.

Welcome to our Kickstarter Page! Here you’ll find further reading about the project, sketches and images of work in that’s in process, as well as what’s to come. You'll also find images and information about the exciting and unique offerings we have as an incentive to support our work. Oh, and there's also a section of FAQ’s that dig deeper into the project…. everything from the budget, to the story behind the title and even the reason for some nudity. No donation is too small, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by clicking the blue “Contact me” link to the right. 

To learn more about us and our work, please click the “See Full Bio” link to the right, or visit www.BarbozaGubo-Mroczek.com where you can see more of our collaborative work in Peru including the Los Chicos series. 

Without further ado...

Virgenes de la Puerta / Virgins of the Door: Photographs by Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo & Andrew Mroczek 

The series Virgenes de la Puerta focuses on the transgender women of Lima, who continue to be cast aside by the political and religious administrations. They are often denied employment, assistance from government programs, and not given any state or government-issued forms of identification; in essence, they are being marginalized and erased.

We honor the diversity of the Peruvian culture by re-incorporating transgender women into the cultural landscape and history of Peru. In direct contrast to their oppressor’s intentions, the work celebrates the contributions made by transgender people and presents them as iconic figures within the context of their native land. These photographs pay homage to the resilience and beauty of these women in an effort to strengthen, empower, and embed a sense of pride within the current and future generations of Peru’s LGBTQ community. 

Whether a portrait or tableau, each image is created by first constructing costumes, sculptural headpieces, and props to adorn and embellish each one of the women. The objects are all designed and fabricated in a collaboration between Barboza-Gubo & Mroczek and the local artisans of Peru who specialize in regional crafts and textiles. Each photograph utilizes culturally relevant references unique to Peru in an effort to embed the women into the culture of their homeland. 

Below you'll see our in-process image of Gaby, a respected trans activist in Lima. It's inspired by the patron saint Santa Rosa of Lima who was rumored to have worn a heavy silver crown with spikes hidden in its interior, emulating Christ’s crown of thorns. Our Santa Rosa dons a crown of thorns sculpted by Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo and finished with silver leaf that was mined in Peru. Its elongated design, which stretches above and past her shoulders, and represents the shared persecution of the people in her community. Once the image is printed at the appropriate scale and installed on gallery walls, it will be positioned at the height of the average adult so as viewers enter the space they will see, from a distance, other visitors standing beneath the crown with her… because when we persecute others, we also persecute ourselves.

This is a digital proof of the image we made for the purpose of this Kickstarter page. The image will be scanned from the negative and refined in post-production, but we wanted to give you a peek!:

The women are photographed with an 8x10 view-camera using color negative film in order to maximize the ability to print the images in oversized scales of up to 6-feet wide. The large negative ensures that the image will retain its integrity when printed in larger scales…. and we want the women in the photographs to be printed close to their natural size.

When photographing we utilize many locations throughout the city of Lima. We look for destinations off the beaten path that represent the country, the city, and its people. Each location is thoroughly researched and we often rent additional props and antiques from local dealers to complete a scene. It's truly a multi-layered production, and we do all the work ourselves without any assistants. 

Once finished, the work will be displayed in galleries and LGBTQ community centers in Lima and, hopefully, in the US. We want to promote a dialog about acceptance, about respect, and about survival. 

We hope this gives you an idea of our work and our mission. The section of FAQ's gives a thorough budget breakdown, as well as a section about the title and some important acknowledgements and thank-you's to the many people who have helped make the start of this possible. We're hoping to add your names to the list of those who can help us finish.

TEXTO EN ESPANOL:

Vírgenes de la Puerta: Fotografías por Juan José Barboza-Gubo y Andrew Mroczek 

La serie "Vírgenes de la Puerta" se centra en las mujeres transgénero de Lima, que continúan siendo dejadas de lado por las administraciones políticas y religiosas. Casi siempre se les niega el empleo, la asistencia de los programas del gobierno, y no se les da ninguna forma de identificación emitida por el gobierno; en esencia, están siendo marginadas y borradas del sistema. 

Honramos la diversidad de la cultura peruana, re-incorporando a las mujeres trangénero en el paisaje cultural y la historia del Perú. En contraste directo con las intenciones de sus opresores, la obra celebra las contribuciones de las personas transgénero y las presenta como figuras icónicas en el contexto de su tierra natal. Estas fotografías son un homenaje a la resistencia y la belleza de estas mujeres en un esfuerzo por fortalecer, capacitar e incorporar un sentido de orgullo dentro de las generaciones actuales y futuras de la comunidad LGTB del Perú. 

Ya sea un retrato o una escena, cada imagen es creada primero construyendo trajes, tocados escultóricos y accesorios para adornar y embellecer cada una de las mujeres. Los objetos diseñados y fabricados son una colaboración entre Barboza-Gubo, Mroczek y los artesanos locales del Perú que se especializan en artesanías y textilería de la región. Cada fotografía utiliza referencias de relevancia cultural única en el Perú, con el afán de integrar a las mujeres en la cultura de su tierra natal. 

Las mujeres son fotografiadas con una cámara 8x10; utilizando una película negativa de color con el fin de maximizar la capacidad de imprimir las imágenes en escalas de gran tamaño, hasta 180 cm de ancho. El gran negativo asegura que la imagen mantenga su integridad cuando se imprime en escalas mayores. El propósito es que las mujeres se impriman cerca de su tamaño natural. 

Al fotografiar, utilizamos muchos lugares de la ciudad de Lima. Buscamos destinos fuera del circuito turístico, que representen el país, la ciudad y su gente. Cada lugar es investigado a fondo y a menudo alquilamos adicionalmente objetos y antigüedades peruanas en los distribuidores locales para completar las escenas. Es realmente una producción de muchas capas, y todo el trabajo lo hacemos nosotros mismos sin ayudantes. 

Una vez finalizado, el trabajo será mostrado en galerías de arte y centros de la comunidad LGBTQ en Lima y en los EE.UU. Queremos promover un diálogo sobre la aceptación, el respeto, y sobre la supervivencia.

 Esperamos que este texto les de una idea de nuestro trabajo y de nuestra misión. La sección de preguntas frecuentes les dará un desglose exhaustivo del presupuesto, así como una sección sobre el título y algunos importantes reconocimientos y agradecimiento a personas que han ayudado a que el inicio de este proyecto sea posible. Esperamos añadir sus nombre a la lista de los que nos ayudarán a terminar este proyecto.

Risks and challenges

We’re confident that we’ll overcome any challenge we face, and we’ve already experienced our share of downfalls – everything from faulty equipment, having to reshoot, or rethinking the overall concept of a photograph; we’ve met every glitch head-on. We also realized that every time something didn’t work out quite the way we expected it to, we took a moment to rethink and recalibrate our ideas to combat the challenges in a way that produced a stronger image and a better result. It’s all about adjusting to the process. In Peru, flexibility is key.

Having spent so much time in Lima working on the project already, we know what to expect and what we need to plan ahead before we travel. The availability of certain artist’s materials and some types of photography equipment can be difficult to access in Lima, so we’re partnered with some amazing colleagues and fellow artists here in the U.S. who have let us borrow what we needed ahead of time, providing us the opportunity to bring more things with us. And, if all else fails, FedEx is God!
