“Women” is a photo series that explores gender identity and intimacy through a series of portraits of transgender women.

            The project was initiated after a transgender friend of mine, Emma Nervosa, committed suicide. Throughout “Women”, I have grown closer to Emma in her passing, as well as gained a fuller understanding of the pain of going through a gender transformation. I have gained a deeper knowledge of my own femininity as my subjects, Kylie and Ashley, explore theirs.
            Through the lens, I explore concepts of identity, self discovery, and transformation as those I photograph slowly change into the women they always knew they were.
