Life as a transsexual as photographed by Paola de Grenet

Barcelona is notorious for its transvestite and transsexual culture. With sex change operations almost as popular as arse implants, the health system is rife with requests. London-based photographer Paola de Grenet spent some time with the girls going through the process. She captured them prostituting themselves on the street to afford the hefty operations, waiting for clients in brothels, and injecting themselves with hormones.

But the most shocking part? They're normal. Really, beer-in-front-of-the-TV normal. They live with their grandparents, they cook Christmas roasts, they hang pictures of their parents on the walls... Are you disappointed? There are no rollerskating midgets, no naked slumber parties, and no walk-in wardrobe of candy thongs. Although, one of the girls has a serious bling collection that could rival Flava Flav.
