When transgender models strike poses beside landmarks in Texas’ most conservative metroplex, the results can be exquisitely photogenic yet ideologically conflicting. But the creative team of Daniel Kusner and Bryan Amann hasn’t shied away from the challenge. “214 Trans4m” is a photo series that aims to capture Dallas’ history, architecture and stereotypes, all while straddling the invisible divide that separates the feminine and masculine. Some regard Dallas (now that George and Laura Bush are our neighbors) as the Lone Star State’s cradle for reactionaries and traditionalists. Where men are men, and women are women. But Big D is too big to surrender to such narrow definitions. Highlighting places of interest for the average visiting tourist, “214 Trans4m” invites Dallasites to look at their own city — but in a different light.
