TRANSCEND - PORTRAITS OF TRANSGENDER & GENDER DIVERSE YOUTH
A photo series capturing 10 children aged 5-17, dressed how they feel best reflects their personality, in an environment they are comfortable in. This series is a chance to create awareness of the reality that is Transgender and the everyday children that live with it. It has also been a moment for the subjects to feel happy in their own skin, as their true self and to inspire others to do the same.
Transcend exhibited in Melbourne & Sydney in 2016 and again in Sydney as a finalist for the Head On Photo Festival in 2017. They now happily reside on the walls at One & All Hub in Rosebery, NSW.
Lane Sainty of Buzzfeed came across a social media post of Transcend and wrote the below article which became a trending piece for weeks and was viewed by millions world-wide. It sparked numerous communication with international media outlets, journalists, radio stations and garnered a letter of support from the Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore.
