Z
Rowan Renee

Z is a collection of nude ambrotype portraits working with transgender, cisgender, and a spectrum of gender non-conforming individuals. The collection uses the 19th century Wet Plate Collodion process with contemporary subjects as a reparative act to revise and reimagine the historic omission of gender variance from the photographic record.
