This exhibition is a wonderful opportunity to see pieces from the Bristol Trans Portraits project within the beautiful, creative space of St George’s Bristol. Founded in July 2020 by Nicky Ebbage, the project uses photography to document and empower the transgender community. Nicky’s portraits present a realistic image of who transgender and non-binary people actually are, and the interviews that accompany them give each participant a platform to talk about their own experiences. The project aims to foster better understanding amongst those who have perhaps never met a trans person, while also providing an empowering experience for all who take part.
“I’m so, so excited to collaborate with St George’s Bristol for this exhibition! Having these photographs on display has always been a goal of mine; the project is about visibility, and an exhibition will allow so many more people to engage with the images. But more than that, this venue holds a real connection to Bristol Trans Portraits. One of my participants was photographed right here in the main hall – as part of an ongoing series, so we’ll also be back here to take more photographs in the future! Exhibiting the work in the same space that some of the images were taken feels really special and I just can’t wait for people to see it!” – Nicky Ebbage
