From Heather Honaker’s article for Little Rock Soirée:

Jess T. Dugan uses their camera to capture “Hank and Samm,” a piece featured in “Together” that is also part of a bigger project called “To Survive on This Shore: Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Adults.” The series was created in collaboration with Dugan’s partner Vanessa Fabre, a social worker and researcher focused on the intersection of LGBTQ+ communities and aging.

“I had worked within trans communities as a photographer. She had worked within trans communities as a social worker, and we realized we could join forces and create a project that attempted to fill a gap in representations around older transgender and gender expansive people,” says Dugan, who published the complete series of pictures and interviews in a book under the same name.
