To Survive on this Shore

Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender-Variant Older Adults (www.tosurviveonthisshore.com) Jess T. Dugan and Vanessa Fabbre. Representations of older transgender people are nearly absent from our culture and within artistic realms, and those that do exist are often one-dimensional. To Survive on this Shore combines photographs of transgender and gender-variant people over the age of fifty with interviews about their life experiences in regards to gender, identity, age, and sexuality and provides a nuanced view into the complexities of aging as a transgender person.

Outsiders: American Photography and Film, 1950s-1980s

Harnessing the descriptive and expressive capacities of photography and film, the artists in this remarkable exhibition, Outsiders: American Photography and Film, 1950s–1980s, all participated in changing the image of American life. They had no interest in what was stable, conventional or safe, and deployed their chosen media to reflect a broader, more complex and more diverse view of the world in which they had grown up. The exhibition Outsiders: American Photography and Film, 1950s–1980s is part of the AGO Year of Photography.
