This is a photo from one of the first real photography projects I did. I was struggling a lot with gender dysphoria at the time and I was just beginning to explore the possibility of identifying as transgender. I felt (and to some extent still feel) trapped by the pressure to identify within a gender binary and to conform to a traditional trans narrative. 

Looking back, I’m glad I am in a much better place (both emotionally and in my technical skill) than I was when I did this project, but I really want to start exploring my identity and working through my feelings in my art again.
