Photographer Documents Transgender Homeless Teenager

Anja Matthes presents “Out-Sight-In In-Sight-Out,” a multi-media collaborative project for Open Source Gallery.

“Out-Sight-In In-Sight-Out” examines gender, identity and sexuality through a collaboration between documentary photographer/filmmaker Anja Matthes and June, a transgender homeless teenager. For this project, Matthes visited community centers in New York City, meeting teenagers with whom she collaborated on photographs. It was in one of these centers where she met June.
