Loren Rex Cameron (August 28, 1959-November 18, 2022) was a pathmaking photographer, author and transgender activist. His work is credited by many for its influence in bringing attention to the social and embodied realities of transsexual people, including portraits and self-portraits along with the personal transition stories of those he photographed, particularly with his book Body Alchemy: Transsexual Portraits (Cleis Press, 1996).
