In the series Lotus, Max Pinckers and Quinten De Bruyn document the world of transsexuals in Thailand. The gender crisis that the so-called ladyboys face is transformed into a visual metaphor about the identity crisis that contemporary documentary photography currently encounters, when it dares to reflect upon itself in a critical way, and expose its internal paradoxes.
The documentary photographer that captures reality as ‘a fly on the wall’ can’t deny his or her directive and manipulative role any longer. The anonymity, the seeming absence is merely a pose. In the end, they are the ones that hold all the power and choose a ‘the decisive moment’. The tableaux that the photographer captures are not lies, but enfold themselves within the studio that he or she creates from reality
