ISO Transgender/Gender-Non Conforming Subjects for Photo Project

The Huffington Post reports on a new photography project by Rhys Harper entitled “The Transcending Gender Project.” The Project is currently seeking self-identified transgender or gender non-conforming persons willing to be photographed and share their stories in an effort to create social change, visibility and unity:

We have big plans for this project. We are planning a major road trip around the US to photograph anyone and everyone we possibly can. We would like to publish a beautiful, hardcover coffee table book with photographs accompanied by a story about each person. Beyond that, I would really like to see these photographs exhibited in a highly visible way -– I’ve been thinking of a large-scale traveling photo installation on a Christo and Jean-Claude scale. Those plans are still in the works, however, I think it is important for as many people to see and experience these photographs as possible -– especially outside of the LGBTQ community.

The other thing I would really like to achieve with this project is unity within the trans community. I think we are a passionate group of people and sometimes differing opinions collide –- but it’s so cool that we are such a unique and diverse group of people even within our own community –- and I want to lay aside everything and just capture people. That’s it. No politics, no opinions –- just capturing each person in a way that is authentic to who they are.
