Join us for a conversation with photographer Jess T. Dugan and social worker Vanessa Fabbre on the making of To Survive on This Shore: Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Older Adults, on view in the museum's Project Gallery through January 2, 2022. The conversation will be moderated by Jamie M. Allen, Stephen B. and Janice G. Ashley Associate Curator, Department of Photography.
For over five years, Dugan and Fabbre traveled throughout the United States seeking individuals whose experiences exist within the complex intersections of gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic class, and geographic location. Together they moved from coast to coast, to big cities and small towns, documenting the life stories of transgender and gender nonconforming older adults, an important but largely underrepresented population. The project’s participants have a wide variety of life narratives spanning the last ninety years, offering an important historical record of transgender experience and activism in the United States.
