Image Description : In the warmth of natural light seen in the reflection of the mirror, a fat black trans artist sits naked in front of cream colored fabric and shows fluidity in their movement. Their body folds and curves with the reflected shadows.

This is an image of an ongoing project called "Trans Spaces" in which I collaborate with other trans artists. I seek to assist in creating a space that gives room for feelings of fullness. We create a space that represents the essence of self. Many trans people must subdue parts of themselves for things such as safety and I want to allow space for folx to exist in their truth.
