Dazed - Do these photos change your mind?
ALL THE PEOPLE, BERND OTT
Take 39 people of 15 nationalities from five different cities and you’re sure to get a diverse group of individuals. All The People accomplishes just that, a photobook celebrating the diversity of gender expression through photographs by Bernd Ott and interviews of the subjects conducted by Emily Besa. Throughout the book, we are presented with individual experiences and stories which allow the reader to understand the full spectrum of gender identity, explored through images of people aged from five to 69, and hailing from everywhere from Trinidad and Tobago to Spain. Neither Ott nor Besa identify as transgender or genderqueer, but both have a feeling of kinship with the community, and aim to explore the connection with each individual, while celebrating the power to live authentically as yourself.
