My project with Em, which we started in 2018. We were introduced through a mutual friend shortly after she had told her wife and friends that she was transgender. our project was to document Emma’s transition from her birth gender to becoming the person who she was born to be. The early photos of Emma (then Eric) show a deep awkwardness - a sense of unease because she is uncomfortable in her own skin. Far from living on the fringe, she was and is a corporate lawyer - a career noted for its stability but not for those who rock the boat. At the same time she was keeping a part of herself deeply buried. But no longer. Her journey still continues and I look forward to being a part of it.
