On the Cusp
As part of this project, I invited people who identify as transgender to be photographed. Presented are six very different people who share a similar, yet very individual and personal journey. I was interested in photographing sitters in their own, personal environment wearing day-to-day clothes they feel comfortable in. By having the photographs taken in this way, it strips them of any signifiers attached to common stereotypes; these are everyday people in everyday environments. My main aim is in breaking down barriers and dispelling stereotypes about people who identify as transgendered, with the work encouraging an open discussion amongst people of any gender or preferences.
