"In many ways, Lotus takes an unprecedented approach to photographic storytelling. Pinckers and De Bruyn use delicate artificial lighting and careful staging in their snapshot-like photographs, but unexpected elements and hints of improvisation also find a place in their work. While focusing on the serious and urgent subject of the transsexual community and its search for a place in society, the book also exposes the actual process of behind the scenes image making. This duality of surface and underneath, of appearance and actuality, animates both the subject and the artistic process. Pinckers and De Bruyn mindfully balance the thin line between truth and fantasy, allowing fiction to widen our perception of reality."
