From David Ebony’s review for artnet News:

With all the media attention lavished on Caitlyn Jenner, and transgender issues of late, this exhibition of Lindsay Morris’s photo study of a camp for transgender children could not be more timely—or poignant. In the series, “You are You,” Morris documents a summer camp for gender non-conforming kids in the Midwest, which she has been attending since 2007.

The color photographs in uniform, modest size (13 by 19 inches each), show happy kids, playing dress-up, frolicking through the countryside in high-heels, or putting on makeup. The Detroit-born, New York-based Morris has chosen to emphasize the joyfulness of these children at camp, and only hint at the trauma that their regular daily existence in the “real world” must entail.
