Embrace

Monday, August 21st, 2017

..August 2017.. ..New Jersey..

Hanging a small selection of prints with Rose from my project “Embrace.” Embrace is an on-going project photographing transgender, intersex and gender non-binary people from across the world. To date, the project includes people from America, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Scotland and Japan.

Even though the project is still in it’s early stages this was an opportunity to show a few of the portraitsat the Ocean Heights Presbyterian Church in Egg Harbor Twp, New Jersey from August 20th-September 17th. And more importantly to have a discussion how people with gender identities outside of the traditional categories are not confined to one country, culture or age group. The project will not be complete for another year. With portraits scheduled in Europe and Japan, it will be an exciting autumn.

I look forward to eventually exhibiting every portrait which was taken in the project once it is complete.
