Johan Peter Jønsson
To be a transgender person is about the identity you feel comfortable representing. If it is a man or woman it does not matter. This has resulted in a series of portraits displaying different counterparts of each person, one comfortable, one uncomfortable and sometimes even a third persona according to how the individual feels best reflecting his or hers identity. This method of working helps to visualise the complex and often awkward feelings of dressing up in clothes that do not feel right. In addition I have photographed family album pictures and personal items from past and present life in order to connect the counterparts. This explains their personal stories and provides an understanding of their individual identity.
