Considering Art Podcast – Victoria Cantons, painter and photographer

In this episode, Victoria Cantons takes us through her troubled transgender history from childhood to her transitioning at the age of 39. She tells how photography became her first artistic expression before she opted for painting and fulfilled her long-held wish to go to art school. She also talks about learning technique from both contemporary artists as well as old masters and how her recent self-portraits express themes of power, identity and gender politics.
