BODY LIKE MINE
I opened up a discussion on instagram about the lack of diverse representation of transgender bodies in the media, when I had an influx of people message me about how their bodies looking "different" and "unusual", despite all having things in common. I quickly realised that there was a huge imbalance between what we are shown, verses what exists amongst every day people, and I want to challenge that.
"Body Like Mine" is a collection of body portraits featuring real people with real stories, starting with my own chest.
