The world’s first underground railway opened in London in 1863, as a way of reducing street congestion. Initially sub-surface lines, built by digging a long trench, laying track and covering it over again. The technology for the safe tunnelling of tubes deeper below London developed by 1870, but the first successful tube railway was not practical until electric power and safe lifts were perfected in the late 1880s. There was interest in this novel mode of transport, but investors were still cautious. The next Tubes did not open for nearly 10 years. Later schemes also struggled to raise money but were helped by the intervention of an American financier. These new linked lines opened in 1906-7, completing the core of the modern Tube system. Today the Underground transports five million passengers daily.

A love in exploring and expressing my femme self through style, colour and textures appeals to my transgender, sensual and artistic lifestyle interests. Emotionally, I get this warm glow and sense of calm, all with a life loving glint in my eye. I enjoy the role photography plays in publicly supporting and capturing the positive, beautiful, sensual and often celebratory character of the transgender and LGBTIQ+ community. The human body is a fabulous subject and possibly better, at my age, if wrapped in something gorgeous….. and really on a vain note nothing beats looking in the mirror and seeing somebody totally different looking back. I can also be found on Instagram and Flickr.
