Leopoldo Bloom

Bio

For over twenty years Leopoldo Bloom has been creating visual memoirs that document his life as a transgender artist on the margins. His photographic based work deals with his experience of cultural exile and the contemporary sense of place as it relates to queer identity. His first memoir How To Transition On Sixty Three Cents A Day is an unbound book of postcards that challenges the current practice of placing queer experiences in traditional narrative mediums. His current photo-book project: The Migratory Patterns of North American Queers at the Turn of the Century uses the obsolete format of the family photo album to reexamine queer storytelling.
