1990-2003

Starting in the early ’90s, my work focused on female-to-male as well as male-to-female people who live full time in the gender in which they identify. I photographed the evolution of political activism, young gender variant people, and made portraits of individuals as their life circumstances changed. “The Gender Frontier”, published in 2003, represents an amazing decade in the struggle against discrimination.
