Born Twice documents the transition of two transgender women, Jennifer and Michelle, as they go through sex reassignment surgery. At their age, the risks of complication are significantly increased, yet, both want to “finish the cycle” and are committed to take the final step into their transition together. With this work I aim to give an intimate photographic account of their relationship through stages of discomfort, anticipation, and rediscovery.
