Esmee is a transgender girl living in the Netherlands. She began transitioning 2 1/2 years ago at the age of 9. One of her hobbies is horse back riding. She is photographed with her favorite horse Shamo.

“Esmee is a wonderful, bright, intelligent, happy, sensitive, funny, caring, beautiful and lovely girl. And we as parents are very proud of her. We went to the rest of our family and told everyone about our daughter, which everybody accepted immediately. Even the neighborhood embraced Esmee instantly. We are very blessed with such understanding people around us, it’s very important for transgenders to be accepted for who they are.”
-Esmee’s parents Riena and Henk

This is a portrait from my project “Embrace” featuring portraits of transgender and gender non-binary youth and adults from different parts of the world.

Dresden, February 13th, 1945

..Dresden Altmarkt..

The only memorial within the old town which acknowledges the civilians who perished during the firebombing of Dresden on February 13th and 14th, 1945.

For weeks an unknown amount of bodies were cremated on this spot in the Altmarkt.

Today the Altmarkt is still the old square of Dresden, with a large parking garage underneath. You have to be aware that this small plague exists or you will walk passed it without noticing.

Some other memorials remembering the dead are also located at various mass graves in the city’s cemeteries at the Dresden Heidefriedhof and Johannisfriedhof Cemetery. The mass grave at Johannisfriedhof wasn’t revealed to the public until after the fall of the DDR in 1990, 45 years after Dresden was destroyed.
