For more than ten years, together with my partner, the journalist Beate Lakotta, I have accompanied young people who feel they are girls but were born in a boy's body and vice versa. The portraits make the difficult process of becoming one with oneself visible. The project includes a video documentary. In interviews, the trans girls and boys talk about self-rejection and self-discovery, solidarity and exclusion, friendship and bullying, experiences with parents, siblings and first love.
Here you can see a short version on Instagram (original length: 54 min.)
The Deichtorhallen Hamburg and the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt, among others, showed parts of the series.
Work on the project is still ongoing.
