American Boys is a bold and intuitive representation of the United States’ trans-masculine communities. New movements in queer and trans identity politics have worked to expand contemporary notions of binary gender roles, carving out spaces for more fluid and transitory identities. The photographs shine a light on what it means to be trans in America today through a series of sincere and intimate portraits of trans men at distinct stages of their transition. This body of work involved travelling to each subjects’ hometowns to photograph them within their personal surroundings. American Boys demonstrates a raw and honest body of work providing viewers with a snapshot into each person’s life, character and journey across the trans-masculine spectrum.

American Boys was reshown as part of Queertography – a Head On exhibition during Sydney Mardi Gras 2023 for World Pride.
