"Gender-dysphoric children are searching from the depths of their being for a new identity. But how, as a photographer, can you show with any subtlety that girls are physically boys and vice versa?” - Sarah Wong
From 2003 to 2018, Sarah Wong followed and photographed the lives of cross-gendered children. She was invited into their homes, schools, and daily life activities; proving they are regular children that are living the lives they have always wanted. These images were the first official photos of transgender children from the Netherlands. Originally published in the Dutch daily newspaper, “De Volkskrant (“The People’s Paper”),” Wong created the series of photographs, which later became a published book titled, “Inside Out: Portraits of Cross Gender Children,” to bring awareness and inform people about this vulnerable population.
