Muxe: pronounced - (Mu-sha) is a Zapotec word for a 3rd sex, a male individual who dresses and acts as a woman. I ran across the Muxe while doing research for another project and became fascinated by the elaborate traditional costumes. Everything I had seen of the Muxe was very journalistic in nature and I decided to travel down to the southern state of Oaxaca to do something beautiful for these women. I had full size paper flower frames created and asked the women to dress in their finest for this series of portraits.
