Bernd Ott & Emily Besa – All the people
“All the People” explores the gender spectrum on a personal level with individuals living in Amsterdam, Berlin, London, Los Angeles, and New York who express and define their gender on their own terms. They identify as transgender, gender queer, drag performers, or do not identify themselves at all. These are their stories and their portraits, as they wished to be depicted. This collection of sensitive and intimate portraits in images and words, the first collaborative publication from photographer Bernd Ott and writer Emily Besa, celebrates human existence in all forms.
