From the article by Francine Weiss, PhD, for Loupe: Journal of the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University:

Three years ago, artist Lindsay Morris began photographing a camp for gender non-conforming and transgender biological boys. Organized by the children’s parents in a different location each year, the camp provides a safe and liberating environment in which the children can explore their own identities and fully express their interpretations of femininity in the company of each other, their parents, and siblings. Morris aptly renames this camp, “You Are You” to protect the privacy of the children. What comes across immediately in Morris’ photographs is the unadulterated jubilation and sheer abandon of the children (consider, for instance, the gesture of the child in the photograph, “In Between”)—an idea further underscored by the vibrant and joyful colors in Morris’ images.
