"The Katoeys of Nana" is about acceptance and sharing. I was fortunate to be accepted into the katoey gogo clubs at Nana Plaza in Bangkok as an observer, as a photographer by sharing the images with them.
Thailand is the land where the girls are beautiful, and the boys are even more gorgeous, because they work hard at being more beautiful.
This book has 120 pages of photographs.
These are portraits not of Thai ladies, but of Thai Ladyboys,
the Katoeys of Nana Plaza.
Randy Magnus grew up in the Central Valley farmlands of California, and saw the cultural diversity that came into the area as the population grew. He learned to celebrate what the different cultures had to offer in the arts, food, and lifestyles. With his cameras Randy would document the cultural celebrations, showing the pride in what sets each culture apart, perserving a part of their unique heritage to share with others. Randy Magnus has work in several museums, including MOMA in New York City, the Oakland Museum, and the Achenbach Print Collection at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco.
