Loren Cameron was a pioneer photographer, author
and transgender activist
. His work includes portraits
of transsexual bodies in both clothed
form along with the personal transition stories of his subjects. As well as his published work, he exhibited his art in galleries and lectured at universities. He was the recipient of the Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Literature in 1997. His entire collection of books and private papers are archived at Cornell University in the Kroch Library.
Loren was a solitary person who, in later life, preferred the company of his little dogs, and could be seen walking them around his Berkeley neighborhood day and night. He is survived by three sisters, who are feeling the large hole he has left in their lives.
