Knowing.

Knowing {Life Unfolding}

Justin is noisy and funny. He has a quick sense of humour. He can laugh at himself easily and put others at ease around him. He’s also sweet and empathetic. He very bravely put himself in front of my camera. I say bravely because Justin in a young man in transition from the woman’s body he lives in.

He honoured me with his trust. As a photographer I understand that the impact the images I create will have on the way a person sees themselves. It’s a responsibility I take seriously. I knew I had the opportunity, with shadow and light, to allow Justin to see himself as the person he has always known he is. To put the girlish parts of his body into shadow and allow him to see HIMself.

His Mom, Sylvie exemplifies Motherhood. To love your child through everything. No matter what. To face down those who might be cruel or walk away because they are frightened by what they don’t understand.

Today Justin graduates. Congratulations my friend.

    I am so touched I am in tears. Thank you so much for opening your arms and accepting my Justin for who he is. You made him feel 10 ft tall
