Room to  Breathe

Room to Breathe (2021 - 2023) is a celebration of the quiet moments of joy felt by trans and non-binary people. The individuals featured welcome us into their worlds, they create, grow and share, offering an alternative to traditional narratives of trans life. Collaboratively made, the portraits reflect the intimacy and trust invoked by the subject-maker relationship. The project centers on the humanity of the participants, representing them on their own terms. The images prompt the viewer into a moment of pause, in which to examine their own empathy and assumptions. Often fatigued with an increasingly hostile political landscape, these people are a testament to the resilience of a community that continues to flourish.
