Abstract:Documentary photography is the narrative based on facts and records of events in a report format. Although racial injustice and biased differences were common initially, the underlying objectivity of this thesis involves the main aim to display the utmost reality. It is a way to report stark realities that come into perspective with images of persons, places, or events. On the other hand, it is a form of representation from the photographer’s point of view. Although, there is no denying that a picture represents a thousand words and displays several perspectives. As a source of revealing the importance of documentary photography in the Indian subcontinent, this thesis will help to expose the sore point of a country that belittles a community of transgender persons. This photography documentary is showing the cruelty that is confronted by transgender persons in Pakistan. Based upon the timeline of nine months, the comparative study of two transgender persons reflects the complexity of their survival. My photography documentary has captured and frozen the instances from the daily existence of transgender persons, focusing on their lifestyle, living conditions, community environment, and personal life. Transgender identity, by birth or by choice, is a chilling fact marginalizing a person to a community where existence is difficult.

Title:Odkrivanje življenja transspolne osebe v Pakistanu
Abstract:Dokumentarna fotografija je pripoved, ki temelji na dejstvih in zapisih dogodkov v obliki poročila. S tezo poskušam predstaviti vlogo dokumentarne fotografije pri objektivnem prikazovanju resničnega življenja, kljub temu da so njeni začetki zaznamovani tudi z rasno pristranskostjo in krivicami. Dokumentarna fotografija je način poročanja, ki daje vidnost osebam, krajem ali dogodkom, obenem pa je oblika reprezentacije s stališča fotografa. Ob tem ni moč zanikati, da fotografija predstavlja tisoč besed in prikazuje več perspektiv. Pričujoča fotografska serija prikazuje krutost, s katero se transspolne osebe soočajo v Pakistanu. Je pomemben vir razkrivanja nevralgične točke države, ki omalovažuje skupnost transspolnih oseb. Primerjalna študija življenja dveh transspolnih oseb temelji na devetih mesecih sodelovanja, prikazuje pa njihove težke življenjske okoliščine. Transspolnost ob rojstvu ali po lastni izbiri namreč pomeni marginalizacijo v skupnost, kjer je preživetje izjemno težko. Fotografska serija je poskušala ujeti in zamrzniti podobe vsakdana transspolnih oseb, pri čemer se je osredotočila na njihov življenjski slog, življenjske razmere, skupnost in osebno življenje.
