Swedish photographer Christer Strömholm befriended the transsexual women who worked the streets of Paris in the 1950’s and 1960’s, documenting their lives as they fought to live as women and to save money for sex reassignment surgery.

I’ve collected what I feel are twenty of his most compelling photographs of these women and posted them with some commentary at the link below.
