Simona, the Italian former wrestler is transgender, and with her height and eccentric looks a striking appearance within the Amsterdam nightlife.
“I’ve had success in music and sports,” she says openly, “and enjoy being the centre of attention. There are people who are made to live in peace, and people who were born for the jet set lifestyle.”
The photo series ‘We all care…..Transfair’ by photographer Monique Shaw and art director Spekko on Amsterdam’s Simona is now bundled in the book ‘Transfair’. The phenomenal pictures create a living work of art of Simona, from which the viewer cannot take their eyes off.
During the Amsterdam Gay Pride / EuroPride 2016, in the presence of Simona, the first copy of ‘Transfair’ will be presented to Irene Hemelaar, director LGBTI-emancipation, from ‘Stichting Amsterdam Gay Pride’.
“I hope the way I express myself will encourage others to continue to fight for what they desire and want to achieve in their lives. After a long struggle, I am glad to be able to present myself as a strong woman”.
The limited edition photo book is for sale in the GO Gallery.

His self-portraits, though which he created a brand new image of the masculine homosexual man, adorned the covers of countless gay magazines.
Peter Berlin’s solo show for Euro Pride will feature a stimulating collection of unique and hand edited vintage photographs and newer prints, where the artist portrays himself as the world’s first Selfie-photographer in erotic poses, both naked and clothed, in skin-tight outfits that he used to create for the shoots that left little to the imagination.
Kaili Smith is a talented young painter and photographer from a bi-cultural background. Born in the Netherlands and raised in Australia, he now lives in Rotterdam. His art, that takes him around the world, is a reflection on the increasingly integrated society of today. He reflects both on the beauty and the struggles of it.
‘Not to be titled’ is a collection of works which takes a conscious approach to the lack of diversity in art. The work focuses on a range of people from diverse backgrounds both male and female, looking past cultural stereotypes into who they really are and what energy they give off. All this communicated through aesthetically life size paintings. Every viewer will find a bit of themselves in at least one of the paintings.
Kaili is currently studying Fine arts at Willem de Kooning Academy, and was recently accepted to study at the New York “School of Visual Arts”. He belongs to a new generation of artists who want to be more involved and connected to the world around them. He seeks to create a dialogue with society instead of criticising it from a distance. Being just 20 years of age, Kaili shows a promising future in the art world.
